Gunmen have beheaded the Sole Administrator of Ideato North Local Government Area of Imo State, Chris Ohizu.
Ohizu who was kidnapped on Friday was butchered on Sunday, January 22 after the gunmen reportedly received N6 million ransom.
He was abducted alongside two others at Imoko community in the Arondizuogu and his home set ablaze.
A video of the beheaded chairman is currently trending online where the abductors vowed that elections would not hold in Nigeria.
The video was reported uploaded on his WhatsApp status by the kidnappers using his phone.
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.”
When contacted, the spokesperson for the police in the state, Henry Okoye, confirmed the incident and simply said “investigation is ongoing.”
