Unknown gunmen who abducted a member of the Anambra State House of Assembly, Okechukwu Okoye, have beheaded him.

The assailants according to reports reaching Naija News at the time, made a horror display of the lawmaker’s head at a motor park in Nnobi, Idemili South Local Government Area of the state.

It was gathered that the incident happened on Saturday, May 21, 2022.

The sad development has since created panic in the community which had been witnessing incessant killings since last year, Naija News understands.

SaharaReporters confirmed from a source that the remains of the lawmaker was not there and indications were that the killers removed the body.

The Anambra lawmaker representing Soludo’s constituency, Okechukwu Okoye who was earlier kidnapped, has been beheaded by gunmen; the late lawmaker’s head was mounted at Chisco Park in Amichi community,” a military source told SaharaReporters on Saturday.

Naija News recalls that Okoye who was representing Aguata II state constituency in Aguata was whisked away to an unknown location last week.
