Nasarawa Governor Talks Tough, Vows To Hunt Killers of APC Chairman




Governor Abdullahi Sule of Nasarawa State has stated that the killers of Philip Shekwo, the state chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) will be fished out.

Naija News recalls that the late Nasarawa APC chairman was on Saturday night kidnapped from his residence in Lafia.

Shekwo’s bullet-riddled body was later found on Sunday close to his residence.


Reacting in a statement by his chief press secretary, Ibrahim Addra, Governor Sule vowed not to allow the killers of the APC chairman to go scot-free.

He said: “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.”
