A middle-aged man whose name was given as Ifeanyi Okoye, who was kidnapped two days before Christmas, has been found dead in Awka.

The victim, reportedly a resident of Awgbu in Orumba North local government area, was abducted in the Okpuno area of ​​Anambra state capital and taken away by his captors, but his dead body was not found until Christmas Day.

The state police warrant has confirmed the incident, although the public relations officer of the state police, PPRO, Mr. Tochukwu Ikenga, argued that it may not have been a case of kidnapping.

“It is a pure case of murder and it is still under investigation. We are urging witnesses where the dead body was found to voluntarily provide information that will support the ongoing investigation.

“Preliminary information shows that the incident could be cult-related, as there were traces of ax cuts on the deceased body,” he said.

The PPRO said the body has been recovered and deposited in the morgue.
