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.
“#Polls At North Bank Area, Makurdi, Benue State, EFCC operatives intercept bags of cash meant for vote-buying. In an attempt to arrest the culprit, some thugs attacked operatives and vandalised the bus used for patrol. #SayNoToVoteBuying”.
