The abducted Sole Administrator of Ideato North Local Government Area (LGA) of Imo State, Chris Ohizu, has been beheaded by some ‘Unknown Gunmen’.

POLITICS NIGERIA reports that Unknown Gunmen is a catch-all for the criminal gangs carrying out frequent bouts of attacks on southeast residents.

The council boss was butchered on Sunday after his abductors allegedly received N6 million as ransom. He was abducted last week, with his house burnt down.

Video of his beheading surfaced online, where his killers insisted that there would be no election in the southeast part of Nigeria.

This newspaper gathered that the assailants published videos of the beheading with the phone of their victim on his WhatsApp status.

“The sole administrator has been beheaded,” a source confirmed to the press.

“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.”

When contacted, the spokesman of the police in Imo State, Henry Okoye, said “investigation is ongoing”.
