Nigerian police launched an investigation into the beheading of a local MP in the southeastern state of Anambra a week after gunmen abducted him and an aide.
The discovery of Okechukwu Okoye‘s mutilated body over the weekend has sparked outrage.
Anambra’s state governor Charles Soludo described the killing as gruesome, barbaric and shocking.
He announced a reward for information leading to the killers’ capture.
It’s not clear who was behind the attack.
Officials have blamed a banned separatist group for increasing violence in the region.
