Plateau State Governor, Simon Bako Lalong has expressed sorrow over the death of retired Assistant Inspector General of Police, Hamisu Ali-Jos who died in an Indian hospital after a protracted illness.
Lalong in a condolence message signed by Makut Simon Macham, Ph.D.
Director of Press and Public Affairs to the Governor of Plateau State described the late Ali-Jos who died at the age of 78, as a man of honour who served Nigeria with dignity and sincerity rising to the rank of Assistant Inspector General of Police as well as serving as a one time Sole Administrator of Katsina State.
The Governor said the death of Ali-Jos creates a huge vacuum that will be difficult to fill as the State benefited immensely from his wealth of wisdom particularly in addressing security challenges and restoring peace to Plateau.
He asked the family of the deceased to accept his death as the will of God and take solace in the fact that he served his community, State and Country fervently, leaving lasting legacies that will continue to linger for a long time.
