Gunmen beheads lawmaker in Anambra State, gory images attached
A lawmaker representing Aguata II Constituency in the State House of Assembly, Hon Okechukwu Okoye, has been beheaded by suspected gunmen.
Recalled that the lawmaker was kidnapped, alongside another last week in his Toyota Sienna car by yet to be identified persons.
On Saturday, May 21, his head was found at Nnobi, in Idemili South Local Government Area of Anambra State, where it was hanged while his body was kept by his killers.
Confirming this incident, the State Government condemned the wicked act and therefore places a N10 million reward for anyone or group of persons that provide vital information about the perpetrators.
A statement by the governor’s Press Secretary, Christian Aburime, read;
“Prof Chukwuma Charles Soludo; CFR, has received with shock and deep sadness the news of the gruesome murder of Hon. Okechukwu Okoye, member representing Aguata II Constituency at the State House of Assembly and his aide, Cyril Chiegboka. Both Hon Okoye and Cyril Chiegboka were kidnapped on the road by the heartless and barbaric murderers on 15th May.
Gov Soludo condoles with his kinsmen of Isuofia, noting that it is probably the same criminal gang that attacked him and killed three policemen at Isuofia two years ago that are once again on the prowl. But they can never cow down Isuofia and Anambra State.
Governor Soludo, still in shock over the barbaric acts against his two kinsmen, vowed that the perpetrators as well as all criminals operating in Anambra must be decisively brought to book.
Governor Soludo has consequently placed a N10 million reward for anyone or group that will avail valuable information that will lead to the immediate arrest of the perpetrators of this dastardly act. Anambra will soon be a hell for these criminals.
The spokesperson of the state Police Command, Ikenga Tochukwu also confirmed the mutilation of the deceased lawmaker, he said below;
“His head was found along Nnobi Road today (Saturday). There is no suspect in custody yet”
