The kidnapped chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Nasarawa State, Philip Shekwo, has been found dead.
A source close to the family confirmed this Sunday afternoon.
The APC was yet to officially react to the kidnap at the time of this report.
The chairman of Karu local government, Samuel Akala, also confirmed the death on his Facebook page.
The Nasarawa State Commissioner of Police, Dele Longe, confirmed his kidnap earlier on Sunday.
“We have covered everywhere, we sent our police to comb everywhere. We have done all the necessary things to ensure that he is rescued and by the grace of God he will be rescued,” Longe said.
