BREAKING: Gunmen behead Imo sole administrator online

Gunmen have beheaded the Sole Administrator of the Ideato North Local Government Area of Imo State, Christopher Ohizu.

His abductors carried out the act after allegedly receiving a N6 million ransom.

The gunmen, who called themselves separatists, reportedly tied his hands backward with a rope before he was slaughtered.

The council boss was kidnapped with two others on Friday after his country home in the Imoko community in Arondizuogu area of the LGA was razed.
