Okechukwu Okoye, member of the Anambra State House of Assembly has been beheaded by his abductors.
After beheading him, the gunmen were said to have reportedly displayed the lawmakers head at a motor park in Nnobi, Idemili South Local Government Area of the state.
Sources added that his body was not there and indications were that the killers removed the body.
Gunmen had last Sunday abducted the lawmaker who was representing Aguata II state constituency in Aguata alongside Cyril Chiegboka, his campaign director.
The police later recovered the car and said that they had deployed operatives to rescue the lawmaker and begun manhunt to track the kidnappers.
Governor Chukwuma Soludo hails from the same constituency as the slain lawmaker.
