President Muhammadu Buhari has condemned the killing of Nasarawa State Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Chief Philip Shekwo.
President Buhari, in a statement issued on Sunday by his spokesman, Garba Shehu, said the nation’s security system must do more to end the incidents of violence in the country.
The President welcomed the decision of the Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, to send reinforcement of men and materials to the state.
Buhari, while reacting to the tragic incident, condoled with the family of the deceased, said: “I strongly condemn the killing of Philip Shekwo. He was kind and jovial. His contribution towards strengthening the party in Nasarawa State will not be forgotten. May his soul Rest in Peace.”
The statement said the late APC Chairman was shot twice leading to his death, adding that police investigation would determine if this was an assassination or kidnapping-related murder.
