Governor Simon Lalong of Plateau state, on Thursday, in a released statement by the state’s Director of Press and Public Affairs, Macham Makut, has said, he will not hesitate to sign the death warrant of anyone convicted of kidnapping in the state.


In the words of spokesman Makut,

“He (also) assured all that, he will not hesitate to sign the death warrant for any convicted kidnapper, who is found guilty of the crime, as the law against kidnapping signed last year stipulates death penalty which is ready to be implemented.”


According to Director Macham Makut, “Governor Lalong was glad that, the swift response of security forces to distress calls of kidnap incidents, led to the dislocation of their operations, leading to the rescue of some victims and arrest of suspects.”


Makut added that,

“The governor urged security agencies, which include the Nigeria Police Force, Department of State Services, Operation Safe Haven, Operation Rainbow, Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, other paramilitary agencies and vigilante groups, to sustain the heat on the criminals, assuring them that the government will do everything possible to continue to provide support for them to flush out kidnappers and other criminals from the State.”


The state’s Director of Press and Public Affairs, Makut, also stated that,

“Lalong also called on citizens of Plateau State to support the security agencies with intelligence that will enable them not only respond, but pre-empt the activities of criminals who are desperate to disrupt the peace of the state.”


Macham Makut said,

“Plateau State Governor, Simon Lalong, commended security personnel in the state, for rising up to the occasion, and thwarting attempts by kidnappers to create fear among citizens.”
