The Nassarawa State chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Mr. Philip Shekwo who was kidnapped shortly before midnight on Saturday, November 22, 2020 has been killed.
His lifeless body was found this afternoon, Sunday, November 22, 2020 few hours after his kidnapp.
It will be recalled that the APC chieftain, Shekwo had during a thanksgiving service on Sunday, August 12, 2018 in Toto Local Government area of the state declared that President Muhammadu Buhari was sent by God to save Nigeria from total collapse.
He said: “If not because God, in his infinite mercy, decided to bring Buhari to power at the time He did, the country could have been in a serious mess by now.
“The President is sincerely fighting corruption; corruption is responsible for all other reasons why there is so much rot in the system.
“Boko Haram was also defeated and no Local Government Area in the country today is under the control of the group as was the case in the past.
“Immediately President Buhari started fighting corruption and corrupt people, every right-thinking Nigerian knew that corruption would fight back.”
He attributed the killings by suspected Herdsmen and bandits in some parts of the country to “corruption fighting back to discredit the president”.
Shekwo appealed to Nigerians to believe in the President and the party as it would take time to rebuild the system which was destroyed by former leaders.
