Gov. Samuel Ortom has vowed to ensure that the killers of Sen Gabriel Suswam’s elder brother are arrested and brought to justice.
Ortom said this in a statement issued by his Chief Press Secretary (CPS), Terver Akase, on Wednesday in Makurdi.
It said the governor assured security operatives in the state of maximum support to apprehend the killers and ensure that justice was served.
” Gov. Ortom stresses that his administration will not surrender Benue to criminals, and gives assurance that killers and kidnapers operating in Sankera axis of the State won’t go unpunished,” the statement said.
He prayed God to grant the deceased eternal rest and his family the strength to bear the loss.
Meanwhile, the Police Command in Benue said it had cordoned off Anyiin town, where the deceased was shot by his assailants on Tuesday evening while supervising the repairs of his plaza.(NAN)
