Abdullahi Sule, governor of Nasarawa, says killers of Philip Shekwo, chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state, will be hunted.


Armed men abducted Shekwo from his residence in Lafia, the state capital, on Saturday night.

They were said to have exchanged gunfire with the security detail attached to the APC chairman before whisking him away.

Raman Nansel, spokesman of the Nasarawa police command, told TheCable that Shekwo had been killed as his corpse was found on Sunday.


In a statement issued on behalf of Sule, Ibrahim Addra, the governor’s chief press secretary, said killers of the APC chairman will not go scot-free.

He said the perpetrators will be hunted and punished in accordance with the law.

“We received with great shock and bewilderment the killing of the Nasarawa State Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Philip Tatari Shekwo, in the hands of yet to be identified gunmen who forcefully gained entrance into his residence last night,” the statement reads.


“My prayers and thoughts go to the family of the late Shekwo. He was a great husband, a statesman, peaceful gentleman and loyal party man.

“I will like to assure all that the perpetrators of this dastard act will not go scot-free. Investigations have already commenced by our security agencies who will do all it takes to hunt down these criminals and bring them to justice.”
