A former lawmaker representing Nnewi South Local Government Area of Anambra State, Nelson Achukwu, has been beheaded by gunmen in Anambra State, Nigeria’s South-east.

He was reportedly abducted a few months and later released by gunmen who accused him of providing information to military authorities.

Three weeks ago, he was again abducted from his house in the Mkpor community.

According to report, he was beheaded after his family paid N15 million as ransom to the gunmen.

According to the police spokesperson in the state, Tochukwu Ikenga, Achukwu’s body was found on Tuesday between the boundary of Uke and Ukpor Communities in the council area.

“His decapitated body was found at the back of Ulasi Rivers and was quickly buried by the family on Tuesday evening as the body was already decomposing.

“Efforts were being made to rescue him (from his abductors) before this unfortunate development,” Ikenga said.

The police spokesperson said the police would not relent in investigating the incident and assured that the suspects would be tracked down.

Achukwu is the owner of Nelly Oil & Gas Filling Station in Utuh, another community in the council area.

“His decapitated body was found at the back of Ulasi Rivers and was quickly buried by the family on Tuesday evening as the body was already decomposing.

“Efforts were being made to rescue him (from his abductors) before this unfortunate development,” Ikenga said.
