Gunmen, who claimed that there will be no elections in the Southeast region, beheaded the Sole Administrator of Ideato North Local Government Area of Imo state, Mr Christopher Ohizu, on Monday.
The council boss was kidnapped last Friday, alongside two others, and his houses set ablaze.
The gruesome act was captured in a video that went viral on social media.
The video showed a man they identified to be Ohizu; his hands were tied backwards and kneeling in a forest. He had on just trousers.
One of them said; “Hope, Hope (the state governor) you see this man kneeling here? You know this man?
“The way I am killing this man is the way I am going to kill you. You think hiring soldiers will save you.
“We are not ESN, IPOB; we are a set group of people that see what is happening in the land and we are saying no.
“We must fight to make sure that Biafra is restored. Biafra must be restored. As far as the Eastern region is concerned no election.”
Recall that the police said: “On 20th January 2023 at about 1a.m., some gunmen attacked the home of the Sole Administrator (SOLAD) of Ideato North LGA of Imo State Mr Christopher Ohizu, shot him on his leg, shot his two security dogs, burnt his house, abducted him and two others; one Christopher Okeke ‘m’ and Onyedikachi Kanu ‘m’ after which they drove away to an unknown destination with one of the SOLAD’s vehicle.
“Operatives of Imo State Police Command including the APC crew are on their trail to ensure the instantaneous release of the captives, possible apprehension and prosecution of the perpetrators of this dreadful crime.”
At the time of filing this report the police Public Relations Officer, PPRO, Henry Okoye, was yet to respond to the incident.
