Assassins, not kidnappers, killed Namang – Plateau APC 

The chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Plateau state, Hon. Rufus Bature, has said that the party’s spokesman, late Mr. Sylvanus Namang, was killed by assassins and not kidnappers.

This was part of Bature’s assertions during a press conference held at the party’s secretariat, Monday.

“According to information made available to the party, Namang was dastardly murdered at a provision store in Pankshin by some gunmen suspected to be assassins along with the owner of the store.

“Though details of this unacceptable and unfortunate incident are yet to be released by security agencies, we as a party, feel constrained and also seriously agitated as well as concerned about the circumstances leading to his death for some obvious reasons,” he said. 

Bature stated that without them sounding immodest as a party, they discarded the insinuations that said Namang was killed by kidnappers.

“We refuse to subscribe to the narratives being peddled around on the gruesome murder even when investigations have not been concluded. The APC view this as serious matter and want to believe that some of its members and some citizens are not safe in the state.

“Consequently, we demand thorough investigation into the murder and that perpetrators of this dastardly act be brought to justice to allay fears that at the moment engulf the teeming supporters of the APC,” Bature said.
