The assailants of Hon.



Okechukwu Okoye, an Anambra State lawmaker, have reportedly vowed to kill additional MPs.

The threat comes less than 24 hours after the gruesome murder of a politician from Aguata II State Constituency, whose body was discovered on Saturday at Nnobi, in the state's Idemili South Council Area.

On May 15, 2022, Okoye and his driver were kidnapped in Aguata, according to Naijacrawl.

Later, he was beheaded.

According to a Daily Trust story, a local of Nnobi told the newspaper that a message was left next to the lawmaker's head by the roadside.

It quoted the resident as saying, “In the note, the killers vowed that more heads would roll." The letter was not too clear due to raindrops, 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 (sic) are no longer our problem.

Killings and arson have been on the rise in the state since March 17, when Prof. Charles Soludo was sworn in as the governor of the state.

No fewer than four local government headquarters in the state and several police stations had been attacked and set ablaze within the period.

Meanwhile, some Anambra communities have alleged that “unknown gunmen” have set up camps in their areas.

According to a message circulating on social media, the criminal elements have created a new camp in Unubi, Nnewi South Local Government Area, from where they launch attacks on indigenes.

Also, an unsigned message which was circulated on social media gave an account of how some people attacked some residents in the Igboukwu community, along Obiuno-Ekwulumili Road last Friday.

It said, “The armed gang have created a new operational camp in the Unubi bush, a town located in the Nnewi South Local Government Council of Anambra State."

“On Friday evening, May 20th, 2022, at about 5:50 pm, unknown gunmen laid siege along the road, specifically at Ugwumba Bus Stop, in search of the owner of a Lexus Rx330 who allegedly succeeded in escaping from his car.

“The Lexus vehicle owner quickly alighted from the car after driving it into the gutter at Ugwumba bus stop and ran into Ezechibuike’s home, which is situated around the bus stop, through which he fled.

However, the unidentified gunmen, said to be numbering more than ten, on arrival at the bus stop discovered that the owner of the car had left, so they laid siege to Ugwumba bus stop for an upward duration of an hour and commanded all the road users this evening to lie face down while they were busy searching for the Lexus owner.”

Indigenes of Igboukwu and Unubi in the diaspora were advised not to be in a hurry to return to the village.

An indigene of Ezinifitte, in the same local government area, said youths had deserted the community for fear of being forcefully conscripted into armed gangs.

Although the Anambra Command of the Nigeria Police Force was yet to react to the new development, as the command’s spokesperson, DSP Tochukwu Ikenga, could not be reached on phone, Governor Chukwuma Soludo has vowed to find the hoodlums and make them face justice. 

Naijacrawl earlier reported that Soludo has offered a reward of N10 million to any person or group with information that can assist security agencies to nab the criminals terrorising the state.
