MP Beheaded In Nigeria
In Nigeria, police are investigating the beheading of a local MP in the state of Anambra, barely a week after gunmen kidnapped him and an aide.
Over the weekend, Okechukwu Okoye’s mutilated body was discovered, sparking outrage.
The incident was described as nasty, savage, and horrifying by Anambra state governor Charles Soludo.
He offered a reward for information leading to the capture of the killers.
It’s unclear who carried out the attack.
Officials have blamed the rise in violence in the region on a banned separatist group.
The Indigenous People of Biafra, a separatist movement, has denied involvement in recent attacks.
Nnamdi Kanu, the group’s leader, is facing terrorism and treason charges, which he denies.
