The targeted assassination and gruesome murder of the Acting Gwom Rwey Foron, Da Bulus Chuwang Janka by assailants suspected to be killer herdsmen the night of Monday, 20/09/2020, in his residence at Rasat, Foron of B/Ladi LGA has been described as inhuman, barbaric and devilish.
The Senator representing Northern Senatorial District, Senator Istifanus D Gyang, expressed sadness over the killing, says, “The murderous act was typical of the serial attacks that have targeted traditional rulers in Plateau state for elimination, as if to culminate the annexation of their lands and people.”
He expressed concern that at a time when series of peace building engagements and dialogues has been undertaken at governmental and nongovernmental levels, including Humanitarian Dialogue, among many others, crisis merchants were bent on bloodletting and terrorizing of communities and their traditional rulers.
The Senator called on the government and security agencies to rise to the challenge to arrest this ugly trend and fish out the perpetrators for prompt prosecution; otherwise, lawless and blood thirsty criminals and terrorists will be emboldened in their evil acts, thereby endangering peace and peace-loving citizens.
The Senator commiserates with the immediate family of the late royal father of Foron community, Barkin Ladi LGC, His Majesty the Gbong Gwom Jos and entirety of Plateau people, and prayed for God to grant the Royal Father, Da Bulus Chuwan, eternal rest.
