In the post, Soludo said: ‘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. 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,’ he said.

The governor had earlier announced to have placed a ten million N10,000,000 bounty on the heads of the killers for anyone with useful information on the killers.

Eyewitnesses told Newsmen that Okoye’s head was dumped at Chisco park in Amichi, Nnewi South Local Government Area on Saturday, six days after he was abducted.

Police Public Relations Officer, Tochukwu Ikenga, confirmed the incident on Saturday night.

Reacting to the murder, Governor Charles Soludo condemned the gruesome killing of the lawmaker and commiserated with his family on the loss.
