Governor of Plateau State, Simon Lalong has stated that he will not hold back to sign the execution of anyone convicted of kidnapping in the state.
He revealed this in a statement issued by his Director of Press and Public Affairs, Macham Makut.
Lalong noted that there had been an increased incident of kidnapping in the state.
He cited the rescue of the Gwom Rwey of Vwang District, Da Gyang Gutt Balak shortly after he was kidnapped and the arrest of some suspects as a good development that is worth sustaining.
He also recalled the abduction of the wife of the Deputy Chief of Staff and a Medical Doctor among others, who were also rescued by security forces after being kidnapped and some suspects also arrested recently.
The Governor, however, has commended security personnel in the State for rising up to the occasion and thwarting the attempts by kidnappers to create fear among citizens.
