Nigeria's President Muhammadu Buhari has broken his silence following murder of an APC chairman in Nasarawa.
President Muhammadu Buhari has issued strong warning to security agencies following the killing of an All Progressives Congress Chairman in Nasarawa State.
The president while condemning the killing of Mr Philip Shekwo, urged security agencies to do more to end the violence in the north.
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.
