The All Progressives Congress (APC) on Sunday, called on the Nigeria Police Force and other relevant security services to fish out the killers of the party’s Nasarawa State Chairman, Philip Shekwo who was found dead on Sunday.
Shekwo was found dead barely a day after he was reportedly abducted from his residence in Lafia, the state capital.
The party in a statement issued by its Spokesman, Yekini Nabena, described Shekwo’s demise as “a dark day for the APC family.”
Nabena extended the party’s condolences to the late Shekwo’s immediate family, the Governor of Nasarawa State, Abdullahi Sule, the State Working Committee and the party’s supporters and members over this killing.
He added, “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.”
