murder logoThe protocol officer to the Imo State Deputy Governor, Chief Laz Anyanwu was yesterday evening found dead in Owerri four days after he was reportedly kidnapped near Government House, Owerri, the Imo State capital.

Anyanwu, a former director of administration and services in Ohaji-Egbema Local Government Area was discovered dead along a bush path at Nwaoriebe in Mbaitoli Local Government Area of Imo State yesterday afternoon.

It was gathered that the late Anyanwu was kidnapped near the government house last Friday evening without a trace as to his whereabouts until he was found dead. Governor Rochas Okorocha, who was to address stakeholders’ meeting at the government house was visibly shaken when the body of the late Mr Anyanwu was conveyed to the government house.

It was gathered that no ransom was demanded for his release, a development which government sources said raised suspicion that his death was politically motivated.
