The All Progressives Congress (APC) has urged the Police and other relevant security services to fish out the killers of the Party’s Nasarawa State Chairman, Mr. Philip Shekwo.
This was made known on Sunday in a statement signed by the party’s Deputy National Publicity Secretary, Yekini Nabena.
Mr. Philp Shekwo was reportedly abducted from his residence in Lafia, the state capital, on Saturday night and found dead on Sunday.
The statement read; “This is a dark day for the APC family.
“The APC condoles with the late Shekwo’s immediate family, the Governor of Nasarawa State, Engr. Abdullahi Sule, the State Working Committee and our supporters and members over this shocking killing. We pray the Almighty God grants all that grieve the strength to bear this loss and also grant the late Shekwo eternal rest.
“We urge a thorough investigation by the police and other relevant security service to quickly fish out the sponsors and perpetrators of this evil, heinous and barbaric crime and made to face the full weight of the law.”
KaftanPost earlier reported that the kidnapped APC chairman was found dead on Sunday after he was kidnapped on Saturday night.
It should be noted that the kidnapping of high profiled individuals has become frequent in Lafia, Nassarawa capital, which is also the hometown of the Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu.
