Even with a N10-millon bounty Gov Charles Soludo on the heads of the murderers who beheaded Anambra lawmaker Okechukwu Okoye on the weekend, the criminals appear undeterred.
The have threatened to murder more lawmakers in Anambra state.
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 note was stuck beneath Okoye’s skull when it was found 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,” the Daily Trust quoted a source as saying.
The menace of the unknown gunmen, whom many suspect to be splinters of IPOB, has spread all over the southeast—with Anamabra and Imo being the hotbeds.
