President Muhammadu Buhari has condemned the brutal killing of the Nasarawa State chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Philip Shekwo by some unknown gunmen who abducted him from his home.

He also charged the security agencies to do more in order to end the killings, kidnappings, and violence in the country.

VANTAGE NEWS reported that the APC chieftain was abducted from his home on Saturday night by the assailants.

Shekwo’s lifeless body was later found on Sunday in a bush few metres away from his Lafia home.

In a statement by Garba Shehu, the President’s Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, quoted Buhari as saying that the police has been charged to immediately open up investigation that would unravel whether it was a kidnap or assassination case.

Buhari, who commiserated with Shekwo’s family, also commended the Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu for the swift response after Shekwo was kidnapped.
