Gunmen have beheaded the sole Administrator of Ideato North Local Government Area of Imo State, Chris Ohizu, who was abducted.
The LG boss was murdered on Sunday after his captives were allegedly paid N6 million as ransom.
Video of his beheading trended on social media on Sunday, where his abductors insisted that there won’t be election in the country.
According to a source who chose to remain anonymous, the killers of the council boss posted videos of the incident with the phone of their victim 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 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.”
The development was confirmed by the police spokesperson in the state, Henry Okoye, saying, “investigation is ongoing.”
The deceased was abducted on Friday alongside two others after burning his county home at Imoko community in the Arondizuogu area of the LGA.
He was shot before he was taken away.
