Senator Umaru Al-Makura (APC-Nasarawa) has called on Lafia residents to support security agencies in apprehending those responsible for the killing of the state All Progressives Congress (APC) Chairman, Mr. Phillip Shekwo.
The senator made the call in a statement signed by his media aide, Mr. Danjuma Joseph, in Lafia on Tuesday.
He appealed to the residents to support the security operatives with information, saying those who killed the APC chairman must not go scot-free. Newsmen recall that Shekwo was abducted by gunmen last Saturday from his home in Bukan-Sidi, Lafia, and later found dead on Sunday. Al-Makura, a former governor of the state, described the killing as devastating and a great loss to the state and the country at large. He enjoined security personnel to do all they could to apprehend those responsible for the killing. “I am still shocked beyond words. I received the news of the killing of our party’s chairman in my state by gunmen with great shock and disbelief,” he said.
