A suspected killer of the Nasarawa State chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Late Philip Tatari Shekwo, has been arrested by the police.
Governor Abdullahi Sule announced the arrest of the suspect at a job fair programme yesterday in Lafia.
Governor Sule had told the executives of the Trade Union Congress, (TUC) who paid him a courtesy call in Government House, in Lafia, that 9 persons were arrested in connection with the murder.
The new suspect, Mohammed Usman, according to the governor, is a notorious bandit and kidnapper.
