The governor of Plateau state Simon Lalong, has ordered security agencies in the state to fish out those that murdered the acting district head of Foron (Gwom Rwey), Da Bulus Chuwang Janka.
The Director of Press and Public Affairs to the governor, Dr. Makut Simon Macham, stated this in a statement released to journalists
Dr. Macham said, “Governor Lalong who expressed anger over the killing of the traditional ruler said the murderers will not be allowed to go unpunished as security agencies in collaboration with local intelligence have launched a thorough investigation to arrest the perpetrators and their collaborators.
The statement quoted Making as saying that “heads of security agencies have briefed me on the sad development and the level of investigation so far. I have repeated my charge to them that the days of unknown gunmen is over in Plateau State as innocent people cannot be killed without anybody being apprehended and put to trial. We are using the concept of community policing to dig into this particular case and see to it that the criminals are arrested.”
According to the press release, the governor asked people of the area to cooperate with the local government authority as well as security agencies in not only cracking this case, but also preventing further occurrences.
It was gathered that the Royal father was traced to his residence and murdered in cool blood in the late hours of last Sunday.
The killing of the traditional ruler is currently degenerating tension in northern Plateau state, as his subjects are said to be angered by the act.
