Kidnapped Imo LG Boss beheaded after paying ransom

The kidnapped Sole Administrator of the Ideato North local government area of Imo State, Chris Ohizu, has been gruesomely murdered.

Ohizu was kidnapped last week by the gunmen after his country home was razed down by the unknown assailants.

In a video posted on Ohizu WhatsApp status early Monday morning, the gunmen were seen beheading Ohizu at a yet-to-be identified location.

The gunmen, who spoke in Imo dialect, also sent out threats to the Imo State governor, Hope Uzodinma.

According to the gunmen, “Hope Hope you see this man kneeling here. You know this man. The way I am killing this man is the way I am going to kill you. You think hiring soldiers will save you.


“We are not ESN, IPOB, we are a set group of people that see what is happening in the land and we are saying no. We must fight to make sure that Biafra is restored. Biafra must be restored. As far as the Eastern region is concerned no election.”


It should be recalled that the police said: “On 20th January 2023 at about 0100 am, some gunmen number yet unknown attacked the home of the Sole Administrator (SOLAD) of Ideato North LGA of Imo State Mr Christopher Ohizu ‘m’, shot him on his leg, shot his two security dogs, burnt his house, abducted him and two others one Christopher Okeke ‘m’ and Onyedikachi Kanu ‘m’ after which they drove away to an unknown destination with one of the SOLAD’s vehicle.
