- Urges security agencies to ‘DO MORE’ to end violence in Nigeria
President Muhammadu Buhari reacting to the murder of Mr Philip Shekwo, Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), in Nasarawa State, challenged security agencies to “do more” to end violence in Nigeria.
The late APC Chairman was kidnapped by gunmen, who stormed his residence in Lafia on Saturday night. He was found dead later.
The President in a statement by Malam Garba Shehu, his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, ordered Police investigation into the death.
He said the investigation would determine if it was an assassination or kidnap-related murder.
Buhari applauded the Inspector General of Police, Muhammed Adamu, for sending reinforcement of men and materials to the state.
Describing Shekwo as kind and jovial individual, Buhari commiserated with the family of the deceased.
”His contribution towards strengthening the party in Nasarawa State will not be forgotten.
“May his soul Rest in Peace,” the statement added.
