All Progressives Congress (APC) Nigeria

The APC Congress of All Progressives has reacted to the assassination of the Nasarawa state president, Mr. Philip Shekwo, saying it is a dark day for the party.

Consequently, the ruling party has urged the police and other relevant security services to fish for Mr. Shekwo’s killers.

The deceased was reportedly abducted from his residence in Lafia, the state capital, on Saturday night and found dead on Sunday.

“This is a dark day for the APC family,” party spokesman Yekini Nabena said in a brief statement Sunday in Abuja.

He said; “The APC has condolences from the immediate family of the late Shekwo, the Governor of Nasarawa State, Ing. Abdullahi Sule, the State Labor Committee and our supporters and members for this terrible murder. We pray that Almighty God will grant all who suffer 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 services to quickly locate the sponsors and perpetrators of this evil, heinous and barbaric crime and to face the full weight of the law.”
