The Assistant Controller-General of Prisons, Nanvyat Wuyep Gwali who was gruesomely murdered by yet to be identified gunmen in his farmstead along Keffi – Nasarawa road in Nasarawa State was finally laid to rest on Friday in his home town, Simchor in Kanamycin LGA of Plateau State.
The body which arrived at his village at about 1145hrs was greeted by a wailing crowd amidst curses that the perpetrators of the dastardly act be unmasked and brought to book soonest.
In a condolence message to the diseased family, the Controller-General of Prisons, Ja’afaru Ahmed noted that late Gwali epitomised a gentleman officer, astute and courageous with a remarkable sense of commitment to the service of his father land throughout his career. Though sad that his life was cut short by evildoers and would be certainly missed by all, Ja’afaru urged the family members to take solace in the fact that the late officer led a life worthy of emulation.
He prayed for the repose of the departed soul and that those behind this high level wickedness be unveiled and brought to justice.
