Jang’s ex-aide killed
Unknown gunmen suspected to be robbers have shot dead a former commissioner, Hon. Sargwak Wazhi, who served in the immediate past administration of Senator Jonah Jang in Plateau state while wounding his driver.
The late Wazhi was said to be in company of a serving transition council chairman of Langtang South Local Government Area, Nicholas Vongsing.
The incident, it was gathered, occurred on Thursday night along Mangu – Barkin Ladi road.
A member of staff of Langtang South Local Government who pleaded anonymity because he was not authorized to speak on the incident said that the suspected robbers opened fire on the vehicle of the former commissioner, which had Mr. Vongsing as one of the passengers.
“The robbers shot at the car, killing Wazhi; his driver was also shot, but he didn’t die. Both were taken to the General hospital in Mangu, where he was confirmed dead,” the source added.
Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) of the State Police Command in the State, Tyopev Terna, said they had not been briefed on the development, but would investigate it.
