Okechukwu Okoye, a lawmaker in the Anambra state gathering of Nigeria and his helper disappeared recently.

Police in Nigeria have found the cut off top of a state lawmaker who disappeared last week in the southeastern province of Anambra, where the public authority blames separatists for doing a spate of killings and kidnappings, police said on Sunday.

The southeast, country of the Igbo ethnic gathering, is fomenting to withdraw from the remainder of Nigeria and the prohibited Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) bunch has been driving those calls.

Okechukwu Okoye, an official in the Anambra state gathering and his helper disappeared on May 15. His head was found on Saturday night in a recreation area in the Nnewi south nearby government region, Anambra state police representative Tochukwu Ikenga said.

"The administrator was killed. His head was found along Nnobi street. There is no suspect in guardianship yet,"

 Ikenga said.

The Anambra state lead representative has set up a 10 million naira ($24,000) prize for data on the executioners.

Early this month, shooters killed and guillotined two officers in adjoining Imo state. The public authority denounced IPOB, which denied the charge.

The viciousness in the southeast is one more layer of weakness in Nigeria, where kidnappings for emancipate are normal in the northwest and an Islamist revolt has been happening for over 10 years in the upper east of the country.

Pardon International said last August that Nigerian security powers had killed no less than 115 individuals in the southeast in the initial eight months of 2021 and for arbitrary reasons captured or tormented scores of others. The public authority didn't remark.
