Plateau State Governor, Simon Bako is excited with the release of Jennifer Ukambomg Samuel, a nurse from Plateau State, by her Boko Haram captors.

Lalong in a press release signed by Simon Makut Macham, his director of press affairs commended security agencies particularly the Department of State Services for the rescue of Jennifer and four other colleagues of hers that were kidnapped late last year by the terrorists.

The statement said he is “excited at this development and thanked President Muhammadu Buhari for his support in ensuring that all those in captivity are set free while the terror group and other criminals are fished out and dealt with.”

It is recalled that the governor had assured the family of Jennifer that the State Government will work with all necessary agencies to secure her release when he sent a delegation to the family led by commissioner of Budget and Planning Mr. Sylvester Wallangko.

The Governor says efforts to rescue other citizens of Plateau State still under Boko Haram captivity are ongoing and asked the family and people of Plateau State to continue to pray and support the Government and security agencies with useful information that will assist in their quick release.

He also says more security measures are being taken to tackle incidences of criminality and forstall attacks on innocent citizens across the country.
