Uche Nwosu: Okorocha’s son-in-law slams police’s ‘unprofessional conduct’

Uche Nwosu, a son-in-law to Rochas Okorocha, former Governor of Imo State on Monday said the police never invited him before whisking him away from church.

POLITICS NIGERIA recalls that Nwosu was arrested on Sunday at St. Peter’s Anglican Church, Eziama-Obaire in Nkwerre Local Government Area of the state by policemen in connection with “a case that is under investigation.”

The manner of his arrest had triggered rumours that he was kidnapped until the Police Command Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Michael Abattam, clarified that he was arrested, following an order from above.

Nwosu in a statement issued by his media aide, Chikezie Nwadike, disclosed that he didn’t spend the night in the facilities of the police.

The statement also debunked the speculation that Nwosu was arrested in a church because he had refused to honour many police invitations extended to him.

The statement reads in part, “This is to inform the general public, friends and well-wishers, supporters and sympathizers that Ugwumba Uche Nwosu, who was abducted by security agencies while observing church service at St Peter’s Anglican Church Umunwokwe Village Eziama-Obaire Nkwerre LGA, has regained his freedom and released unconditionally. He never spent a night in their custody as every effort was put in place to get him out.

“Recall the ugly incident that took place yesterday, 26th December 2021, at St Peter’s Anglican Church as security operatives swooped him inside the church during the outing service of his mother’s burial and whisked him away amidst sporadic shootings and harassment of the congregation.

“I have spoken with him and he extended his greetings to all of us out there.”
