The Governor noted that God allowed the death for a purpose.
Shekwo was abducted Saturday night from his residence in Lafia, and was found dead on Sunday.
A statement by Bello’s spokesperson, Mary Noel-Berje, described the deceased as a peaceful, committed and dedicated party leader, NAN reports.
“His death is unfortunate, but God is not unaware. He allowed it for a purpose. May God comfort the immediate family, the APC members and the entire people of the state,” it read.
The governor prayed that God will grant the family of the deceased the fortitude to bear the loss.
The APC national leadership also condoled with the family, the state government and Nasarawa people.
