How He Was Murdered

The victim was kidnapped at around 10:15 p.m. on June 9, 2022, in his home, and efforts were undertaken to free him. Nelson Emeka Achukwu, has been beheaded by unidentified gunmen. Although he had earlier been abducted by the gunmen a few months ago and later released after the payment of a N15 million ransom, he was kidnapped again some weeks after. His decapitated body was quickly buried by the family members on Tuesday as the corpse had started to decompose.

A family source said the late Achukwu told members of the family when he was first released, that the gunmen accused him of providing information to the military but got released when they found out that the allegations levelled against him were false. However, the reason for his second kidnap and murder is still unknown. The source said: “We couldn’t believe he would be killed after we had already paid the N15 million ransom requested by his abductors.” This is the second of such gruesome murder after the lawmaker representing Aguata North local government at the state House of Assembly, Okechukwu Okoye, was murdered by his abductors in May, 2022.
