Governor Charles Soludo of Anambra State has placed a bounty of N10 million for information on the killers of a lawmaker, Okechukwu Okoye.
Okoye who was recently kidnapped was discovered to have been beheaded by unknown gunmen.
Expressing displeasure at the gruesome murder, Soludo urged every community to brace up and join forces with the government in the war to reclaim the state.
He wrote on Facebook, “These are my brothers! Hon. Okechukwu Okoye (Okey dị okay) and Cyril Chiegboka were murdered in the most gruesome manner. No human being should ever have to experience death in that way. For no just reason, rampaging criminals have elected to desecrate our land with the blood of the innocent.
“This is a test of our resolve, and we are more emboldened than cowed that this criminality MUST be stamped out of our land. Ụmụnnem Ndị Anambra, this is not who we are. The party is over, and every community must brace up to join forces with government in this war to reclaim our homeland.
“Okey and Cyril will NEVER die in vain. May God console their young families, the people of Isuofia and ndị Anambra. May their souls and all others who have lost their lives in the hands of these criminals continue to rest in peace.
‘We have placed a ten million Naira (10,000,000) bounty for anyone with useful information. This war is one that Anambra must win!”
