IMO: Abducted LGA boss beheaded after N6m ransom

THE sole administrator of Imo State’s Ideato North Local Government Area, Chris Ohizu, was beheaded by his captors less than 48 hours after they kidnapped him.

Information gathered reveals that the council chair was beheaded yesterday.

The kidnappers allegedly performed the terrible act after supposedly receiving a N6million naira ransom.

Ohizu and two other people were abducted from his rural residence in the Imoko community of the Arondizuogu region on Friday and his rural home was also totally destroyed.

The council’s sole administrator was reportedly shot, before being taken away.

In a video posted on Ohizu WhatsApp status this morning, the gunmen were seen beheading Ohizu at a yet-to-be identified location and warning Governor Hope Uzodimma that a similar fate awaited him.

It was reported that they recorded beheading him yesterday and used his phone to update his WhatsApp status.

According to ASP Henry Okoye, a spokesperson for the Imo Police Command, police have started an investigation into the incident.
