The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is alarmed by the gruesome murder of the Senior Special Adviser on Security to Benue State Governor Samuel Ortom, AlIG Christopher Dega (rtd) by gunmen in Jos, Plateau state capital.
The PDP in very strong terms, condemns the murder of AIG Dega (rtd), describing it as barbaric as well as ominous, given the recent attempts on the life of Governor Ortom by terrorists and bandits, marauding various parts of Benuestate.
PDP, in a statement released by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, described the slain Dega as a very patriotic Nigerian and dutiful aide, who gave his all in the service of our dear fatherland and his home state,Benue.
The PDP charges the police to immediately go into action and follow the leads to apprehend and bring the assailants and their backers tojustice.
The party also calls on President Muhammadu Buhari to end his lethargic approach to security matters and take decisive steps to end the activities of terrorists, bandits and vandals, who have been emboldened by his administration’s body language and overtfailure.
The PDP commiserates with Governor Ortom, the Dega family as well as the government and people of Benue state and prayed God to give all the fortitude to bear this this sad episode in our national life.
