The Governor Simon Lalong of Plateau state has expressed deep sadness over the death of his Director of Press & Public Affairs, Emmanuel Samuel Nanle.

Nanle, passed away Monday evening in an Indian hospital where he was receiving treatment.


Lalong in a condolence message issued and signed by Commissioner for Information and Communication, Yakubu Dati described the death as shocking.
