Gunmen Vow To Kill More Lawmakers In Anambra

Unknown gunmen have threatened to murder more lawmakers in Anambra state. This comes amidst the killing and beheading of Hon. Okechukwu Okoye, a lawmaker who represented Aguata II constituency at the Anambra State House of Assembly.


Okoye was abducted in Aguata on May 15, but his head was found in Nnobi, Idemili South Local Government Area of the state, on Saturday, May 21.

A resident of Nnobi told Daily Trust that a note was dropped beside the head of Okoye which was dumped by the roadside.


“In the note, the killers vowed that more heads would roll. The letter was not to clear due to rain drops, but it started with the word “warning”. At some point, it read, ‘everywhere you go, you cannot hide anywhere. We will go after you one by one because soldiers and police is (sic) no longer our problem.”


Meanwhile, the Anambra state government has promised a N10 million reward for anyone with information that would help in the arrest of the gunmen who killed and beheaded Okoye.
