Gunmen Vow To Kill More Lawmakers In Anambra



Shehu Sani Reacts To Beheading Of Anambra Lawmaker

The lawmaker representing Aguata II constituency in the Anambra State, Okechukwu Okoye was beheaded on Saturday days after he was abducted.

Recall that Okoye was kidnapped in Aguata on the 15th of May, while his head was found in Nnobi, Idemili South Local Government Area of the state.

Less than 24 hours after killing the lawmaker, unknown gunmen have threatened to murder more Anambra lawmakers.

A resident of Nnobi that spoke with Daily Trust disclosed that a note was dropped beside the head of Okoye which was dumped by the roadside.

“In the note, the killers vowed that more heads would roll. The letter was not too clear due to raindrops, but it started with the word “warning”.

“At some point, it read, ‘everywhere you go, you cannot hide anywhere. We will go after you one by one because soldiers and police are (sic) no longer our problem.”

Unknown gunmen following the emergence of Charles Soludo as the Governor of the state have attacked several government properties.

No fewer than four local government headquarters in the state and several police stations had been attacked and set ablaze within the period.
