Governor of Plateau State, Hon. Simon Lalong has said he is saddened by the recent gory event that culminated in the killing of a one-time Head of Service, Da Moses Gwom, Corporal Chimezie Goodluck and one Rhoda Dauda by evil men, who do not mean well for humanity and the State. It could be recalled that the Former Head of Service in Plateau state, Moses Gwom was on Tuesday night killed alongside an off duty soldier and a shop attendant near his home in Barkin Ladi local government area of Plateau state. This was contained in a statement signed by Emmanuel Nanle the Director, Press and public affairs to the governor and made available to newsmen in Jos on Thursday.
It reads that “This event is unfortunate and highly condemnable. The Governor has therefore directed the Security Agencies in the State to swing into action to fish out the perpetrators of this heinous and dastardly act. He has also assured the people of the State that their safety remains a priority to Government inspite of pockets of cases that seem to suggest the existence of reprisal attacks. The Governor warned that Government is concerned with the re-occurrence of isolated cases of unprovoked attacks and is resolved on fishing out the perpetrators of these acts of inhumanity, which he assured that the long arm of the law will soon catch up with. The Executive Governor is further calling on all residents of neighborhoods that experienced violence during the dark decade of violent conflicts in the State not to rest on their oars in ensuring vigilance through neighborhood security watch and intensified efforts in building community cohesion.
The Executive Governor extends his heartfelt condolences to the families of all the deceased and prayed for the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss
