For the Governor of Anambra State, Professor Charles Soludo, it’s a journey from one nightmare to another. That has been his life, and the state of his State, in the past couple of weeks.

He thought the limit was the beheading, on Saturday, May 21, 2022, of Honourable Okechukwu Okoye, the House of Assembly Member, representing the Governor’s Constituency, Aguata 2. But no, more was in the offing.

24 hours after Okoye was beheaded, and his head hung at the Chisco Park, Amichi, Nnewi, it was again a river of blood in the State.

On Sunday, May 22, gunmen  shot and killed seven people  in Anambra State. The most heartless:  A mother and her four children were shot and killed in one fell swoop, at Isulo, Orumba North Local Government Area. Another man was also shot and killed at Nanka in same LGA.

Elsewhere in the State, specifically, Abatete, in Idemili North LGA, another man was, shut and killed, bringing the number of fatalities from gun shots to seven.

Eye witness accounts said there was no provocation at all, and it didn’t seem like the Gunmen had any specific targets. “They just opened fire on soft targets”, it was concluded.

The State Police Command was yet to confirm the tragedies at the time of writing this story. But the State has been in a state of siege from gunmen, especially, in the past one month.

They have been attacking security agents and Local Government Headquarters and other public facilities which they usually set ablaze. Tens of vehicles have also been set ablaze. The LGAs attacked include, but not limited to, Nnewi and Aguata LGAs.

A shocked Governor Soludo has placed a N10m bounty on credible information that could lead to the arrest of the gunmen who killed and beheaded Hon. Okoye. His Aide who was kidnapped with him, it is assumed, may have been killed too. However, nobody has any confirmation on that, or the whereabouts of Honourable Okoye’s body which was taken away by those who beheaded him.

A confident-sounding Soludo insists: “Anambra will win.”
