The questionable security challenges confronting the South eastern region of Nigeria is far from over. Everyday, people are killed, kidnapped and even sent out of their communities through violence and terroristic attacks.
just days ago; a Labour Party Campaign Director in Uturu, Isuikwuato Local Government Area of Abia State, Maduka Zachary, popularly known as “Power Zac,” reportedly got beheaded in his house.
According to reports, Zachary was slaughtered in his Uturu country-home by yet-to-be-identified criminals, who made away with his head. He was an integral part of the local security team combating the rising insecurity in Uturu.
“I have spoken with the Chairman of our party in the LGA and he confirmed it. He said it might not be unconnected with insecurity because the man was strong in the fight against insecurity and cultism in that region.”
The Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), in the state, Moureen Chinaka, also confirmed the incident and told newsmen that the victim was beheaded by his attackers who also left with the severed head.
Chinaka, in the statement said, “On September 13, 2023, at approximately 8:30 PM , the DPO Uturu Police division received discreet information concerning the unfortunate murder of Hon Zachary Nmaduka, also known as Power Zack, M, a 70-year-old native of Ezieke Akpukpa Uturu.
“Mr. Nmaduka was violently attacked, shot, and beheaded by unidentified assailants while he was at a drinking joint in Amelechi Akpukpa community.
“Upon receiving this distressing information, a joint team comprising police and army personnel was swiftly dispatched to the scene.
“Tragically, they recovered Mr. Nmaduka’s lifeless body.
“Photographic evidence was captured at the scene, and the deceased’s remains were promptly evacuated and deposited at Marist Mortuary Uturu.”
