Taraba State Governor, Arc Darius Dickson Ishaku has commiserated with the people of Ardo Kola Local Government Area of the state and members of the immediate family of Salihu Dovo, chairman of the Local Government who was kidnapped and assassinated on Sunday.
Governor Ishaku, in a condolence message, condemned the act as barbaric and wicked and assured that the perpetrators would not be allowed to go scot-free.
He directed security agencies to step up investigations to fish out the murderers so that they could be made to face the music.
He described the late chairman as a good man, a man with an abiding love for service to humanity and who certainly did not deserve to die in the circumstances that he did.
As chairman of the Local Government he did alot to make life much more meaningful for the people of his Local Government Area, the reason he enjoyed a lot of popularity among them.
His death has robbed Ardo Kola and the entire Taraba State of his invaluable services, Ishaku said, and prayed God to give his family and the people of Ardo Kola the fortitude to bear his loss.
