Gunmen Behead Governor Soludo’s Kidnapped Lawmaker
Gunmen have beheaded the member of the Anambra State House of Assembly representing Aguata North, Dr Okechukwu Okoye.
The lawmaker who is from Isuofia, the same community as the state Governor, Professor Chukwuma Charles Soludo was popularly known as “Okey Di Okay”. He was kidnapped late on Sunday May 15.
Until his unfortunate kidnap and death, Okoye was representing the Aguata North constituency, the same community as the governor of the state, Prof. Chukwuma Chukwuma Soludo.
Soludo, who confirmed his kidnap on Thursday, during the presentation of the 2022 revised budget to the state House of Assembly, regretted his abduction and assured that the lawmaker would be rescued soon as security agencies were working round the clock to ensure his release.
But his freshly beheaded head was mounted at the Chisco Park in Amichi community, Idemili South Local Government Area, Anambra State on Saturday.
In a viral video circulating online, the freshly beheaded head was seen placed in a carton by the roadside with a handwritten note placed by the side.
But the rest of his body was not there with indications strong the killers made away with it.
