Kingsley Moghalu, a presidential candidate for the African Democratic Congress, has labeled the operations of unknown shooters in the Southeast as terrorism.
Moghalu, who was reacting to the assassination of Okechukwu Okoye, a member of the Anambra State House of Assembly, by unknown gunmen, said the Southeast is bleeding.
Aguata II State constituency in Aguata was abducted by gunmen a few weeks ago.
On Saturday, however, authorities uncovered Okoye’s head without a body.
The beheaded head of the politician was discovered in a car park in Nnobi.
Reacting to the incident, Moghalu described Okoye’s murder as wicked and a condemnable crime.
In a series of tweets, the presidential aspirant wrote: “The gruesome murder of Okechukwu Okoye, a member of the Anambra State House of Assembly and the abduction of his aide Chiegboka are utterly wicked and condemnable crimes.
“The activities of so-called “Unknown Gunmen” in Southeast Nigeria constitute terrorism. SE is bleeding.
“We must end this reign of terror. It remains the responsibility of @NigeriaGov which is responsible for security, to do so. Life has become so cheap in our country that a more fundamental, political leadership change must happen as soon as possible to restore our human dignity.”
