Point Blank


In order to arrest the spate of barbaric killings and wanton destruction of properties, the Plateau State Governor, Barr Caleb Manasseh Mutfwang has approved the constitution of a Security Committee.

In a circular dated 30th January, 2024, signed by the Secretary of the Government of the State, Arc Samuel Nanchang Jatau, FNIA, Governor Mutfwang named the former number two man of the Nigerian Airforce, Air Vice Marshall Napoleon Binkap Bali (Rtd) as the Chairman. Bali is to lead nine other members of the committee which includes the Gbong Gwom Jos, who is the State Chairman of the Traditional Council, Gen Shippi, Special Adviser to the Governor on Security and other prominent security experts with the Secretary of the Government serving as the Secretary of the committee

According to the SGS, the former Commander of the Presidential Air Fleet, AVM Bali and his committee shall be advising and making recommendations to the government on how to ensure adequate security in the state.

This is coming on the day the Speaker of the House of Representatives Rt Hon Tajudden Abbas has called on President Bola Ahmed Tinubu never to think twice in firing any service chief that’s found wanting in the discharge of their responsibilities. It will be recalled sadly that Mangu and Bokkos in particular have come under sustained unprovoked attacks leaving hundreds death, properties destroyed and lands grabbed by the aggressors.

AVM Napoleon Bali, who lost his senatorial seat to the former Governor of the State, Barr Simon Bako Lalong following the contestable Court of Appeal judgement that sacked all PDP legislators from the State can best be described as a round peg in a round hole considering his wealth of experience as an Airforce Officer
