The chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Nasarawa State has been kidnapped.

Philip Shekwor was kidnapped by gunmen on Saturday night, November 21, at his residence along Dunamis Church, Bukan Sidi in Lafia.

The kidnappers were yet to establish contact with members of the APC chieftain.

The incident was confirmed by the state’s police commissioner, Bola Longe.

He said the unidentified gunmen in large number stormed the residence of the APC chairman in Lafia around 11pm and took him away to an unknown destination. The police chief added that security agencies had reacted swiftly by deploying personnel to different forest locations to ensure the safe release of the APC chieftain.

The effort of the police to ensure the safe release of the APC leader was abortive as he has been found dead, as a source close to the family and a leader of the APC in Nasarawa confirmed Shekwor’s death.
