News Senator Gyang seeks investigation of Jos universitystudent’s killing

A Peoples Democratic Party senator representing Plateau North at the National Assembly, Istifanus Gyang, has set up a register to collect views from members of his constituency on the hate speech bill currently before the National Assembly.

Senator Istifanus Gyang who represents PDP-Plateau North has called for a thorough investigation into the killing of a 300-level University of Jos student by University of Jos.

Gyang appealed in a statement by his Special Assistant on Media and Protocol, Mr Musa Ashoms, on Thursday in Jos.

The senator, also Deputy Chairman, Senate Committee on Defence, said the killer of Rinji Peter Bala, a very promising young man from Hwolshe in Jos, must not go unpunished.

“Instances abound of reports of extrajudicial killings across the nation of trigger happy security personnel. These killers acting outside of clearly defined rules of engagement terminate the lives of citizens with reckless abandon.

“I am aware that all arms-bearing personnel of the military and para-military agencies are expected to exercise due diligence and extreme caution in handling the weapons.

“The weapons in their possession are to secure and safeguard the lives and property of citizens,” he stated.

He added that any abuse and misuse of arms by law enforcement agents that result in the killing of law-abiding citizens was unacceptable.
