Reactions have started to flood in from various social media platforms following the recent brutal murder of a former Anambra House of Assembly member by unidentified assailants.
In case you were unaware, a squad of armed assailants recently kidnapped and murdered Nelson Achukwu, a former lawmaker and businessman, in the state of Anambra in the southeast of Nigeria.
The physically challenged Achukwu was kidnapped on June 9, 2022, from his home in Ukpor, according to allegations from multiple media outlets.
The former lawmaker’s decomposing body was eventually discovered with his head missing along the boundary between Uke and Ukpor towns, in spite of many rescue attempts by family members and security services. He was afterwards interred.
As expected, this latest gruesome killing of a prominent person in Anambra has led to a flurry of reactions on the internet.
An hour ago, a Twitter user whose handle goes by the name @lollylarry1, accused prominent persons in the Southeast of keeping quiet over the heinous crime.
According to the lady, there would have been an uproar from the Igbos if the same crime had occurred in another region of the country.
“A lawmaker was killed in Anambra State, the man was actually beheaded, but guess what? The TL (Twitter Timeline) is quiet about it. Let it happen in another region & see how concerned people turning a blind eye will start calling for the wrath of the gods.
They definitely love others more than themselves,” she wrote.
Shortly after making her observation, the lady’s handle was flooded with several reactions from other social media users who also seized the opportunity to air their opinions on the issue.
See some reactions below:
Achukwu is regrettably the second notable figure associated with the Anambra House of Assembly to pass away in such a horrific way recently.
Remember that Honorable Ikechukwu Okoye, a serving lawmaker in the state, was also kidnapped and beheaded by some hoodlums sometime last month. At a well-known auto park in the Anambra, his head was discovered hidden inside a cardboard box.
Achukwu’s murder is particularly interesting because it occurs shortly after the Joint Security Taskforce, established by the Charles Chukwuma Soludo Anambra administration, has recently defeated armed criminals known as the Unknown Gunmen in the state.
