According to a report by SaharaReporters, the Anambra State Command of the Nigeria Police Force has confirmed the killing and beheading of a former state lawmaker, Hon. Nelson Emeka Achukwu, by unidentified gunmen. This came after one month after Okechukwu Okoye, a serving lawmaker representing Governor Chukwuma Soludo’s constituency at the State Assembly was kidnapped and later found beheaded. SaharaReporters had reported that Okoye was kidnapped along with his aide on May 15, 2022, and was later found dead with his head cut off and dropped at Nnobi area.

But confirming the recent incident to SaharaReporters on Tuesday, the command's spokesman, Ikenga Tochukwu, said Achukwu's remains were found between the boundary of Uke and Ukpor communities. The PPRO said “the victim was abducted at about 10:15pm in his house on June 9, 2022 and efforts were being 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 full wrath of the law." The former lawmaker was reportedly kidnapped in his home in Ukpor, Nnewi South LGA, despite being physically challenged. His decapitated body was later found at the bank of Ulasi River and was quickly buried by the family on Tuesday, June 21, 2022 evening as the body was already decomposing.

A family source told SaharaReporters that they couldn’t believe he would be killed after they paid the N15million ransom requested by his abductors. The victim, the owner of Nelly Oil & Gas filling station located along Onuselogu road, Utuh, had earlier been abducted and released a few months ago. Later Achukwu was said to have told his family members that his captors had accused him of providing information to the military but got released when they found out the allegations were false. As at the time of filing this report the reason for his second kidnap and murder is unknown.

These butchers from North aided by their people in our national security agencies  have completely invaded our land. It is clearly their trademark .This is alien to us. They are in all the forests in the South now. The late Dr. Obadiah said it before they killed him. The earlier we chase them out of the forests the better.

It is your people. The Northerners that are perpetrating this evil crime of cutting people's head. It's their style. The Boko haram style.  Until our people realise that security officials of Northern extraction deployed to South East are BANDITS in Igboland this Will continue.
