President Goodluck Jonathan yesterday ordered security agencies to fish out killers of Senator Gyang Dantong.
The President, according to his spokesman Dr. Reuben Abati, described the killing as cruel and regrettable.
Abati told reporters that the President had directed security agencies to ensure that a thorough investigation is carried out to ensure that the culprits are apprehended and brought to justice in due course.
The President also commiserated with the government and people of Plateau State and members and the leadership of the Senate on the incident.
“The Federal Government is working hard to ensure that there is a check on impunity.
“That much was demonstrated with the recent changes made in the top echelon of our security architecture, especially with the appointment of the new National Security Adviser.
“We shall continue to re- invigorate our fight against terrorism and impunity and we are already taking concrete steps. The President further assured citizens of their safety wherever they live,” Abati said
