A high court sitting in Plateau State has seized three vehicles from a former Chairman of the Shendam Local Government Area of the State, Hon Isaac Kyale Kwallu, said to be the property of Qua’an Pan LGA.

The seizure followed a court judgment delivered by Justice S. D. Samchi on November 3, 2022, in Shendam.

“Judgment is entered in favor of the claimant and against the defendants. All the reliefs sought by the claimant are hereby granted as prayed.”
