Unknown assailants beheaded, the chairman of Imo State’s Ideato North Local Government, Christopher Ohizu.
Ohizu, who was kidnapped on Friday along with two other people, was killed after his captors allegedly received an N6 million ransom.
In a viral video, the LG chairman was seen kneeling down with his hands tied to his back in an unknown forest.
An anonymous source from the LGA said that the assailants posted the recording of the incident that happened on their victim’s phone on his Whatsapp status.
The source said: “The sole administrator has been beheaded. We saw videos of how he was being beheaded on Sunday. His killers posted it with his phone on his own WhatsApp status. That was how people got to know that he was beheaded.”
The source expressed regret about the awful footage, pointing out that he was tied and just partially clothed when the assailants killed him.
The state’s police spokesperson, Henry Okoye, confirmed the incident to media and said that an investigation is still continuing.
