Tragedy struck in Imo State on Wednesday after rampaging hoodlums beheaded two persons in the Orsu Local Government Area of the state.

The hoodlums also set the country home of the lawmaker representing the area at the state House of Assembly, Ekene Nnodimele, after beheading his gate man.

The gunmen also beheaded an All Progressives Congress chieftain in the area, Jonathan Ugochukwu.

The multiple attacks took place between 1am and 2am, the villagers said.

Our correspondent, who visited the area on Wednesday morning, observed that the country home of the immediate past state attorney general of the state and commissioner for justice, Cyprian Akaolisa, was also burnt.

A team of policemen were seen inspecting the building when he visited Awo Idemili, Akaolisa’s country home.

Also, the house and vehicle of the councilor representing Amaebu Ebenatu ward, Clifford Mazi, were burnt by the hoodlums after they met his absence when they got to his house.

The rampaging hoodlums also burnt the house of the President General of Amaebu Ebenatu, Oliver Ejelonu, who also escaped.

A reporter who visited the houses where the mayhem took place, saw that household equipment were destroyed.

The wife of one of the victims, Nkechi Ugochukwu, told our correspondent that the attackers invaded their house, carried her husband out, beheaded him and set the house ablaze.

When contacted, the immediate-past attorney general and commissioner for justice, said that he had reported the arson to the police.

Also contacted, the Commissioner of Police, Abutu Yaro admitted knowledge of the incident saying he has sent his men there for on the spot assessment of the incident.
