The All Progressives Congress (APC) has expressed shock and sadness over the murder of one of its chairmen in Nasarawa, Philip Shekwo.
Shekwo was abducted Saturday night from his residence in Lafia, the state capital, and found dead on Sunday.
On Sunday, the spokesman of Nasarawa police command, Raman Nansel disclosed that Shekwo had been killed following his abduction.
The All Progressive Congress while reacting through Yekini Nabena, Deputy National Publicity Secretary, in a statement, said it was “a dark day for the APC family”.
The party condoled with Shekwo’s family, Governor Abdullahi Sule, the State Working Committee, members and supporters.
APC prayed God to give all that grieves the strength to bear the loss and grant Shekwo eternal rest.
Nabena urged the police and other security agencies to “fish out the sponsors and perpetrators of the evil, heinous and barbaric crime”.
