 Contrary to earlier reports, Uche Nwosu, son in-law to former Governor of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha, is in the custody of operatives of the Imo State Police Command and not kidnappers.

Mike Abattam, spokesman of the command, confirmed that the influential Imo politician, who was the 2019 governorship candidate of the Action Alliance (AA) was arrested by the police and not abducted, though he did not give further details of what led to the arrest, except that it was in connection with a case under investigation.

Hear him: “Nwosu was arrested by the police, not kidnapped as insinuated in the social media. His arrest was in connection with a case that is under investigation.”

HURRICANE NEWS gathered that Nwosu who was quite influential under the government of his father in-law was whisked away from the St. Peter’s Anglican Church, Eziama-Obaire in Nkwerre Local Government Area of Imo State during the Outing Service of the victim’s mother, late Jemamah Nwosu.

The former governorship candidate, had reportedly gone to the village for the burial last Wednesday and according to eyewitnesses, was in the church when the officers stormed the vicinity in the middle of the service and started shooting into the air before taking him away.
