Senator Lalong Condemns Murder Of Plateau APC Spokesperson, Calls For Arrest Of Perpetrators



Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Plateau State and Senator representing Plateau South Senatorial District,  Simon Bako Lalong has expressed shock and condemnation over the gruesome murder of the Plateau State APC Publicity Secretary, Mr. Sylvanus Namang who was killed by yet to be identified gunmen in Pankshin shortly after arriving from Mangu where he had attended a funeral event.

Lalong said he was devastated by the news of the barbaric killing of the APC spokesperson who was an accomplished journalist, politician and community leader.

He described the act as unfortunate and condemnable, urging the security agencies to swing into action and ensure that the killers of Mr. Namang are fished out and brought to justice.

He said although it is too early to conclude on motives behind the assassination of the Plateau APC spokesperson, his death is certainly a big loss to his immediate family and the APC in the State and nation at large.

The Senator said the late Sylvanus Namang was an accomplished journalist and media manager who rose to the peak of his career and retired successfully before taking part in active politics where he gave the APC sound visibility upon taking over as State Publicity Secretary.

The former Governor commiserated with the family of the deceased and prayed God to comfort them at this difficult time, assuring them that the APC family will do everything possible to unearth those behind his gruesome murder and ensure they face justice.
