Gov. Lalong and wife pays sympathy visit to Ropvil Daciya’s family
Plateau State Governor, Simon Bako Lalong has paid a personal visit to the family of the late Ropvil Daciya Dalep who was recently killed by terrorists in Borno State.
The Governor in company of his wife, Regina and the Deputy Governor, Prof. Sonni Tyoden arrived the family house in Jing village, Pankshin Local Government to condole with the family of the deceased.
Lalong who had earlier sent a delegation to the family said he was highly distressed by the murder of the student who was on his way to seek knowledge and did not commit any offence apart from being a Christian and a citizen of Plateau State according to his murderers.
He said ” If the killers of Ropvil justified their act on the fact that he is from Plateau State and a Christian, then it means he died for Plateau and Plateau State will not forget him. We will soon do something to keep his memory. His killers will never have peace and one day, they will pay the price of their evil whether here on earth or in the life after. Definitely their reward is hell, while his own reward is heaven”.
The Governor asked the family to take solace in the fact that God who is the ultimate judge knows everything and will avenge the killing of Ropvil.
The Mishkaham Mupun Mishkom Yusuf Wale Fwangbring who responded on behalf of the family thanked the Governor for personally visiting the family even after he had sent a delegation.
He said though the community was devastated by the gruesome murder of their son, the outpouring of love and support from all citizens of Plateau State and Nigerians at large has strengthened them because the action of the terrorists has been condemned by many.
