The head of the member representing Governor Chukwuma Soludo’s constituency (Aguata 11), Hon. Okechukwu Okoye, who was kidnapped last week was found on Saturday, 21st May, 2021, at Nnobi in Idemili South local government area of Anambra State.

His body was not there and indications were that the killers removed the body.

Okoye and one other person were kidnapped at Aguata and the Toyota Sienna car he was driving in was abandoned.

Police later recovered the car and said that they had deployed operatives to rescue the lawmaker and begun a manhunt to track the kidnappers.

But the state Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), DSP Tochukwu Ikenga said last night that Okoye had been killed.

“His head was found along Nnobi road on Saturday. There is no suspect in custody yet,” the PPRO said.

Meanwhile, the state governor, Chukwuma Charles Soludo, while condemning the gruesome murder, has pledged a sum of ten million (N10 million), a reward for any valuable information to track the killers.
