One Fwangshak Plang, a step-brother of the Special Adviser on Public Affairs to the Plateau State Governor, Diket Plang has been assassinated in Pankshin Local Government Area of the State.

It was gathered that the assailants, suspected to be kidnappers, invaded Takas village on Friday night, seriously wounded late Plang, leading to his death.

A source in the community explained that the attackers invaded the home of the governor’s aide and kidnapped his step-mother and a girl.

According to the source, the late Plang, who was asleep when the attackers came, was woken up by the noise in the compound and was immediately attacked when he came out to see what was happening.

The source added, “It was on Friday night that the gunmen came and attacked the house of Diket Plang, who is a special adviser to the governor.

“When they (kidnappers) arrived at his house in Takas that night, the governor’s aide was not in the house at the time.

“So, they broke into the apartment where his step-mother and a young girl staying with her were sleeping and abducted them.”

He further explained that the step-brother, Fwangshak Plang, who was woken up by the noise in the compound from another apartment where he was sleeping, came out to know what was happening, adding that the kidnappers, on sighting him, attacked him and wounded him badly.

He stated that Plang died from the injury inflicted on him, adding that they have not seen the step-mother of the governor’s aide and the young girl staying with her since they were taken away by the kidnappers on Friday night.

“We don’t know where they have taken them to. The incident is really very unfortunate,” he said.

The Police Public Relations Officer in the State, Ubah Ogaba could not respond to phone calls as of the time of filing this report.
