'Nine suspects arrested in Nassarawa over the murdered APC chairman'


Nine of the suspects in the assassination of Nasarawa State APC Chairman Phillip Shekwo have been arrested.

According to Channels, Nassarawa State Governor Abdullahi Sule made the announcement on Friday while receiving a delegation from the state business community in Lafia, the state capital.

The governor said the arrests were linked to harassment and follow-up by the perpetrators.

"More than four days ago, a military operation was underway following the whereabouts of those who believed our assassins were following," Governor Sule said.

"I am happy to inform you that nine of the suspects have been arrested, are being held and are being questioned over the assassination of the APC leader."

According to the governor, three of the suspects were killed on Loko Road, and four AK47 rifles were found in their possession.

On Sunday morning, November 22, 2020, the BBC learned that the APC state chairman, Philip Tatari Shekwo, had been abducted by gunmen.

The gunmen broke into Mr Philip's home around 11:00 Saturday night and took him away, according to police.

The chairman's body was later found abandoned, police said.
