Suspected members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), in a trending video, physically assaulted two traditional rulers abducted in Imo State.
Recall that gunmen had last Sunday abducted Eze Acho Ndukwe of Amagu Ihube and Eze Paul Ogbu of Ihitte Ihube, both in Okigwe Local Government Area of the state.
In the trending video, the two monarchs were seen being beaten by the suspected IPOB members who rained insults on them.
The gunmen told the traditional rulers that IPOB’s leader, Nnamdi Kanu, had asked them to kill the monarchs.
“You are occultic persons. You deserve to die. You have committed enough abomination that warrants the spilling of your blood. Nnamdi Kanu asked us to kill you, you police and wipe away your generation hence you don’t want Biafra to be actualised in your time,” one of the gunmen was heard saying in the video.
Anaedoonline.ng reports that the gunmen later killed the traditional ruler of Ihitte Ihube autonomous community, Paul Ogbu.
The criminals abducted the slain monarch and the traditional ruler of Amagu Ihube, Acho Ndukwe and set their palaces and vehicles ablaze.
However, Ndukwe regained his freedom on Monday after combined security operatives rescued him during a raid on kidnappers den in Orsu Local Government Area and Uli in Ihiala LGA of Anambra state.
Speaking with reporters, a resident of the community said a youth leader, Fabian Nwosu, who was also kidnapped alongside the two monarchs was also killed by the gunmen.
The resident added that the tragic news was revealed by Ndukwe, who said that Ogbu was killed in his presence.
He claimed that Ndukwe disclosed that the unknown gunmen had killed Ogbu and dumped his corpse in a ditch.
The source stated that the corpse of the slain monarch was taken to his village and buried today (Thursday).
