Some unidentified gunmen have beheaded Hon. Okechukwu Okoye, a lawmaker in the Anambra State House Assembly, who was abducted last week Sunday in the state.
Okoye’s head was found at Nnobi in Idemili South local government area of the State where it was hanged.
According to reports, the lawmaker was kidnapped with one person in his Toyota Sienna car.
Governor Charles Soludo offered hope of rescuing the lawmaker, who represented his local government areas in the State Assembly while presenting Anambra’s revised budget to lawmakers on Friday.
Anambra Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Ikenga Tochukwu, confirmed that the lawmaker has been killed.
He said: “His head was found along Nnobi road today (Saturday). There is no suspect in custody yet.”
