Mr Jime was intercepted by operatives of the anti-graft agency, EFCC, for alleged vote-buying. The incident occurred around a polling unit in North Bank area of Makurdi, the state capital. Thugs loyal to APC reportedly attacked vehicles belonging to EFCC in a bid to stop the interception. The wads of cash found in the bag were seized by the EFCC officials. The anti-graft agency also tweeted about the seizure but declined to mention Mr Jime in the tweet.
