PETER OBI AND MURDERED IMO LG CHAIR

LAGOS JANUARY 25TH (NEWSRANGERS)-Peter Obi, the Labour Party’s presidential candidate, has condemned the assassination of Chris Ohizu, the sole administrator of Imo State’s Ideato North Local Government Area, by unknown gunmen.

According to reports in Nigeria, Ohizu was beheaded by his kidnappers after the gunmen allegedly paid a ransom of N6 million to release him.

The gunmen insisted in a video posted online on Sunday that there would be no election in Nigeria.

According to a source from the local government area who spoke with Punch, the killers of Ohizu posted videos of their victim’s beheading on his WhatsApp status.

The sole administrator has been beheaded. We saw videos of how he was being beheaded on Sunday. His killer posted it with his phone on his WhatsApp status. That was how people got to know that he was beheaded.

In response to the killing, the LP candidate condemned it on his verified Twitter page while also expressing condolences to the victim’s family.

Things like this, according to the former Anambra governor, should not happen, and insecurity in the Southeast remains a source of concern.
