Nelson Achukwu, a former lawmaker from Anambra State, has been killed by gunmen. After he had been taken for several days, the man’s relatives found his headless body and were able to identify him.

Mr. Tochukwu Ikenga, who is in charge of public relations for the police, said that the headless body of the late Achukwu was found at the state line between Uke and Ukpor.

He said that the victim was taken from his house at 10:15 p.m. on June 9 and that people were trying to get him back before the bad thing happened and his body was found without his head.

Before the lawmaker was killed, the people who took him had been paid N15 million.

Nelson Achukwu, a former lawmaker from Anambra State, has been killed by gunmen. After he had been taken for several days, the man’s relatives found his headless body and were able to identify him.

Mr. Tochukwu Ikenga, who is in charge of public relations for the police, said that the headless body of the late Achukwu was found at the state line between Uke and Ukpor.

He said that the victim was taken from his house at 10:15 p.m. on June 9 and that people were trying to get him back before the bad thing happened and his body was found without his head.

Mr. Ikenga said that the investigation was still going on, and he promised that the command would do everything it could to catch the criminals.

Findings showed that the headless body was quickly buried on Tuesday by the family because the body had already started to break down.

Achukwu is a former member of the Anambra State House of Assembly and a businessman. A few months ago, gunmen kidnapped him and released him after N15 million was paid as a ransom.

On June 9, he was taken again, and the reason for his second abduction and murder is still unknown.

His death comes after other brutal killings in Anambra State. Last month, Mr. Okechukwu Okoye, a lawmaker who represented the Aguata II State Constituency in the State House of Assembly, was taken hostage and killed.
