Governor Abdullahi Sule has vowed to ensure that those who killed Philip Shekwo, chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state are hunted down and brought to justice.
Recall that armed men who stormed Shekwo’s residence in Lafia, the state capital on Saturday night, whisked him away after having a gunfire exchange with his security detail. His corpse was later found on Sunday November 22.
Governor Sule in a statement released by his chief press secretary Ibrahim Addra, said killers of the APC chairman will not go scot-free.
The statement read;
“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.
“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.”
