The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is alarmed by the gruesome murder of
the Senior Special Adviser on Security to Benue State Governor Samuel
Ortom, AIG Christopher Dega (rtd) by gunmen in Jos, Plateau state
The PDP, in very strong terms, condemns the murder of AIG Dega (rtd),
describing it as barbaric as well as ominous, given the recent attempts
on the life of Governor Ortom by terrorists and bandits, marauding
various parts of Benue state.
The party described the slain Dega as a very patriotic Nigerian and
dutiful aide, who gave his all in the service of our dear fatherland and
his home state, Benue.
The PDP charges the police to immediately go into action and follow the
leads to apprehend and bring the assailants and their backers to
The party also calls on President Muhammadu Buhari to end his lethargic
approach to security matters and take decisive steps to end the
activities of terrorists, bandits and vandals, who have been emboldened
by his administration’s body language and overt failure.
The PDP commiserates with Governor Ortom, the Dega family as well as the
government and people of Benue state and prayed God to give all the
fortitude to bear this this sad episode in our national life.
