“The probe is a witch-hunt. If not, why did they not take it up on him long ago?” Tsav said while speaking to journalists in Makurdi, Benu State.

“Why did they not take it up when he was in PDP and romancing with the APC? I think we are creating a very dangerous trend in this country. Why did they wait until after 13 years before probing him? Why did they have to wait until he became the senate president before probing him?” he asked further.
