Gov Lalong’s aide dies in Indian hospital

News Agency

Emmanuel Nanle, director of press and public affairs to Simon Lalong, governor of Plateau, is dead.

NAN quoted family sources as saying Nanle died on Tuesday in an Indian hospital.

Nanle was reportedly flown to India last Thursday when his situation could not be handled locally.

Mark Longyen, senior special assistant to governor Lalong on media and publicity, confirmed the death to NAN in Jos on Wednesday.

Longyen said the state government received the news of Nanle’s death with shock.

The SSA could not, however, disclose the cause of Nanle’s death but a source told NAN that he died of colon cancer.

According to the source, the late director was treated for the disease in January in India.
