UPDATE: POLICE BEGINS INVESTIGATION AFTER UNKNOWN ASSAILANT BEHEADS IMO LG SOLE ADMINISTRATOR
Chris Ohizu, the abducted Sole Administrator of Ideato North Local Government Area of Imo State, has been beheaded.
According to a report, the council boss was killed on Sunday after his kidnappers allegedly demanded N6 million in ransom.
On Sunday, a video of his beheading appeared online, with his killers adamant that there would be no election in the nation.
An anonymous LGA source revealed that the killers of the lone administrator used their victim’s phone to upload videos of the beheading to 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 videos were horrible. He was tied and half naked before he was beheaded. That was a painful way to die. They butchered him after collecting N6 million ransom.”
Henry Okoye, a spokesman for the state’s police, acknowledged the occurrence when reached and merely stated, “Investigation is ongoing.”
After setting fire to his country home in Imoko Community in the Arondizuogu area of the LGA, the assassinated sole administrator was taken hostage on Friday along with two others.
Before he was abducted, he was shot.
