CORPSE of physically challenged Anambra State Lawmaker identified as Nelson Achukwu, has been found by his relatives with his head severed.
It was gathered that the decapitated body of the late Achukwu was found between the boundary of Uke and Ukpor areas of the state.
His decapitated body was quickly buried by the family members on Tuesday as the corpse had started to decompose.
Achukwu, a former member of the Anambra State House of Assembly and a businessman was reportedly kidnapped from his home in Ukpor on June 9, 2022.
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.
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.
