January 23, (THEWILL) – The kidnapped Administrator of Ideato North Local Government Area of Imo State, Chris Ohizu, has been beheaded by his abductors.
Unconfirmed reports said his killers released a video of the incident on his WhatsApp status.
Ohizu was reportedly killed on Sunday, after his abductors allegedly received N6 million as ransom.
A source quoted by PUNCH 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, Spokesperson of the Imo State Police Command, Henry Okoye, confirmed the incident, noting that “investigation is ongoing.”
Ohizu was kidnapped on Friday, alongside two others by gunmen, who attacked his country home in Imoko community in the Arondizuogu area of the LGA.
