The management of the Nigerian Prisons Service (NPS) with a heavy heart, wishes to confirm the death of Assistant Controller General of Prisons Nanvyet Wuyep Gwali mni, (rtd).
The retired senior officer was gruesomely murdered by yet to be identified gunmen on the evening of Friday 10th August, 2018, at his Farm Stead in Laminga, along Keffi – Nasarawa Road, Nasarawa State.
The deceased senior citizen transferred his services from the then Ministry of Education Plateau State, to the Nigerian Prisons Service in 1989 as a Superintendent of Prisons and rose to the exalted rank of Assistant Controller General of Prisons.
Amongst his numerous strategic deployments while in service, was to cover the duties of Deputy Controller General of Prisons (Finance and Accounts) which was his last deployment before he graciously retired in February 2016.
He will be remembered for being a disciplined, graceful and professional prison officer who brought his wealth of experience to bare and made his mark during his service years.
The NPS is in touch with the relevant security agencies who are on the trail of the perpetrators of this dastardly act to bring them to justice. Funeral arrangements will be made public by the family, in due course.
