Army kills three, arrests nine others in connection with Phillips Shekwo’s assasination


The Nigerian Army has killed three suspects and arrested nine others in connection with the assassination of Nasarawa State chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Philip Tatari Shekwo.

The state governor, Alhaji Abdullahi Sule gave the update while hosting the national leadership of Trade Union Congress (TUC) in the Government House, Lafia.

The governor added that the military operatives also recovered four AK-47 guns from the suspected killers of the APC chairman.

He reassured the residents that the state still remained safe in spite of some security challenges which led to the kidnap and murder of the state APC chairman.

He said security had been beefed up across the state since the murder of the late Chief Philip Tatari Shekwo as a combined military operation is ongoing to further rid the state of criminal elements.

He said the issue of security in the state is not as bad as it’s being projected. Though it was terrible for the state chairman of the ruling party to be murdered notwithstanding, the state government has taken adequate steps to maintain security in the state.
