BREAKING: Gunmen behead Another Anambra Lawmaker, 2nd In 30 Days

Gunmen have beheaded a former Anambra State lawmaker, Nelson Achukwu.

It was gathered that the headless body of the lawmaker was discovered by his relatives two weeks after his abduction.

The deceased, popularly known as Ogbatuluenyi, was reportedly kidnapped from his home in Ukpor, Nnewi South Local Government Area on June 9, 2022.

The incident occurred less than one month after the lawmaker representing Aguata Constituency 2 in the Anambra State House of Assembly, Okechukwu Okoye, was beheaded by abductors in May 2022.

A family source said the deceased was quickly buried by the family on Tuesday as his body was already decomposing.

“We couldn’t believe he would be killed after they paid the N15 million ransom requested by his abductors, despite his physically challenged condition,” the source said.

The Anambra State Police Command spokesperson, Tochukwu Ikenga, confirmed the incident, saying an investigation was ongoing to ensure the culprits were arrested and prosecuted.

Ikenga said: “The victim was abducted around 10:15pm in his house on 9th of June and efforts were made to rescue him before this unfortunate development.

“His body was found between the boundary of Uke and Ukpor.

“We are still not relenting on our investigation as we will ensure that the culprits will face the law.”
