Nigerians await Police explanation on Uche Nwosu’s arrest, release


By John Eche


Nigerians are awaiting the full and official explanation of the Police authorities on the dramatic arrest and consequent release of the former Chief of Staff, and son in liaw to former Governor Rochas Okorocha, Ugwumba Uche Nwosu.


The political player who was the gubernatorial candidate of the AA Party in the 2019 Governorship polls was whisked away from the midst of a church service in Imo State on Sunday.


While initial feelers pointed to an abduction by unidentified persons, the Imo State Police Command later confirmed that the action had been taken by Police operatives from the Coomand even as additional information suggested that the operation may have been linked to the Office of the Inspector General of Police, IGP in Abuja.


Nwosu has presently been released but there is still no word as to why he was taken in the first place and in such dramatic circumstances.
