Gunmen Kill Ex-PDP Official

A former Organizing Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party in Mangu Ward 1, Mangu Local Government Area of Plateau State, Nehemiah Goholshak, has been allegedly shot dead by gunmen.

It was gathered that Goholshak was killed when the assailants attacked his house in the community

A resident of the community, Chris Yakubu, who spoke with The PUNCH in Jos on Monday said that the incident happened on Saturday night.

Yakubu added that an unidentified corpse was also found on the same day along Mangu-Bokkos road close to the community where the former PDP official was killed.

He said, “We are just coming back from a sympathy visit to the family house of Nehemiah Goholshak, a 30-year-old Man who was shot dead by gunmen on August 27, 2022.

“He was a former PDP organizing secretary in Mangu Ward, Mangu LGA

“His Uncle Mr Timothy Goholshak confirmed that he died instantly. So, he was buried yesterday (Sunday) and the community has been in mourning since then.

“I’m particularly not happy because two years ago, his Nehemiah’s elder brother was also shot and killed in the same house and spot by gunmen who attacked him

“What is happening in that axis is rather unfortunate because that same day that Nehemiah was killed, another corps was found around Mangu Bokkos road very close to the Danger village. It was the security men that came and took the corps to mortuary”

The resident called on the government and the security agents to beam their search in the community so as to forestall further occurrence.

The Spokesman for the Plateau state Police Command, Alabo Alfred, did not take his calls when contacted on the development at the time of filing this report.
