Kidnappers behead LG boss after N6m ransom, insist no elections
The abducted Sole Administrator of the Ideato North Local Government Area of Imo State, Chris Ohizu, has been killed.
The council boss was beheaded after his abductors were said to have received N6m as ransom.
A video clip that surfaced online on Sunday showed that the man’s head had been cut off, as his killers said in the video that there would be no election in the country.
It was gathered that the clips showing how the sole administrator was beheaded was sent to his WhatsApp status.
A source in the council said, “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 had been beheaded.
“He was tied and was half naked before he was beheaded. He was killed after the kidnappers collected N6m ransom.”
The spokesperson for the police in the state, Henry Okoye, confirmed the incident, adding, “Investigation is ongoing.”
Ohizu was kidnapped on Friday alongside two. He was shot before he was taken away.
