The Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Nasarawa state chapter, Philip Shekwo, has been kidnapped by unknown armed men.
Shekwo was kidnapped late Saturday night by armed men who invaded his Lafia residence breaking through the fence.
They were said to have exchanged gunfire with the security detail attached to the APC chairman before whisking him away.
The State’s Police Commissioner, Bola Longe who confirmed the incident, said officers have swung into action, searching forests and flashpoints to ensure that Shekwo is rescued.
“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.
