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.

This is happening in Anambra State but you will never see Peter Obi condemn this. He is busy travelling to Equatorial Guinea to learn how to fry egg.

When I thought Britain would collapse because of what the IRA was doing back then.

The IRA were using bombs, set it off and calling the police first, the IRA were masters of terror.

When the world trade center collapsed, I thought American would collapse, it didn't. America still exists today.

All that this country is going through is just a phase, this too shall pass and our grandkids would read about it in history class and laugh at folly of their ancestors

My advice is that you should not lose your life trying to fight for the country, you just have 100 years on this Earth, while Nigeria can exist for infinity.

That's one of Peter Pandora Obi's legacy in Anambra state. The killings started under him because he was too naive to manage an uprising.
Remember he had a Pass in Philosophy. Ordinarily, people with such grade should only be allowed to vote but not to be voted for.

If Boko haram did this, they will quickly claim it. If not, they won't.

Clear communication.

IPOB/ESN guys will keep quiet and collect the blame on both crimes.

Something needs to be done in Anambra state as soon as possible. A once peaceful state is turning into a war zone.
