Meanwhile, an orderly to a former speaker of the Imo State House of Assembly, Chiji Collins, has been found dead.

The victim identified simply as Charles was found dead in a bush in the Oguta Local Government Area of the state a few days ago.

Charles, an inspector of police, was kidnapped a few weeks ago alongside a driver in the Ohaji/ Egbema area of the state.

They were said to be driving in a Hilux and a Sports Utility Vehicle when they were intercepted by their attackers and taken into a bush.

The driver was later found dead while the search for Charles’ whereabouts continued.

The lifeless body of Charles which had already decomposed was later found in a bush a few days ago.

The victim’s colleagues told our correspondent that the command was saddened by the killing of the Inspector of police who hails from the Mbaise area of the state.

One of the sources who doesn’t want to be mentioned said, “Charles’ body was found in a bush in the Oguta area. His body has already decomposed. He was killed in such an unfortunate manner. He was given a cut on the neck. This is so disgusting.”

When contacted, the spokesperson for the police in the state, Henry Okoye, confirmed the incident and added that the state Commissioner of Police, Muhammed Berde, had commissioned a team of police investigators to apprehend the killers.

He said that the command would ensure that those who killed the Inspector are caught and made to face the full wrath of the law.
