January 29, 2017 – Traditional Ruler Assassinated In Plateau State

Suspected assassin at midnight attacked Gyangyang village in Jhar Chiefdom of Kanam Local Government area of Plateau State, killing the acting village head, Alhaji Mohammed Suleiman.

A family source told NAN in Jos that the gunmen invaded the house of the deceased at about 1am on Friday and killed the traditional ruler.

The source said that the gunmen, who carried sophisticated weapons, stationed some of their men outside the house to ensure that nobody interfered with their operation.

“We heard when they shot him and when we made efforts to come out, the gunmen stationed outside started shooting sporadically,” the source said.

The Chairman of Kanam Local Government Area, Hamidu Bale, confirmed the incident to NAN.

Bale said: “I have spoken with the Divisional Police Officer and other security agents and they have moved to the area.

“They will tell us after their investigation exactly what happened.”

However, when contacted, ASP Terna Tyopev, the Plateau State Police Command’s Public Relations Officer, said he was yet to be briefed about the incident.

“I will call the DPO in the area and I will get back to you,” Tyopev told NAN.
