Governor Samuel Ortom condemns the killing of Reverend Father Ferdinand Ngugban of St. Paul’s Catholic Church, Aye-Twar village in Katsina-Ala Local Government Area of Benue State by gunmen.
The Governor describes the attack as mindless and wonders why a harmless priest would become the target of armed men.
He reassures the people of Katsina-Ala and Sankera in general that the State Government will not relent until those responsible for the killing and other attacks in that part of the state are brought to justice.
The Governor reaffirms the resolve of his administration not to handover the state to criminals and urges Benue people to continue to support security operatives with timely and useful information.
Governor Ortom sympathizes with the bereaved family and prays that God grants the soul of Reverend Father Ngugban eternal rest.
