He said Dalyep was a student of the University of Maiduguri and was a hero since the insurgents claimed his death was on behalf of the Plateau people.

“We will find a place to put his name in Jos. I pray God will continue to console the family and the culprits be fished out,” he said.

Lalong expressed sadness that Dalyep’s death was unusual because he was not sick or involved in an accident, but only pursuing his future to become great.

“Their reward is in hell and his in heaven. Please take it in good faith,” he told the family.
