Philip Shekwo, chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Nasarawa state, has been found dead.

It had been reported how armed men abducted Shekwo from his residence in Lafia, the state capital, on Saturday night.

They were said to have exchanged gunfire with the security detail attached to the APC chairman before whisking him away.

Bola Longe, police commissioner in the state who confirmed the incident, had said his men were combing forests and flashpoints to ensure that Shekwo is rescued.

But on Sunday Raman Nansel, spokesman of the Nasarawa police command, told Our Correspondent that Shekwo had been killed.

“We discovered his corpse today and it has been taken to the morgue for post mortem examination,” he told our Correspondent over the phone.

“Investigation has begun. We are determined to unravel the cause of the incident.”
