The All Progressives Congress (APC) chapter in Imo has stated that Mr Uche Nwosu, a former governorship candidate in the state, was lawfully arrested rather than kidnapped.

This is stated in a press release signed by the APC’s publicity secretary, Mr Cajetan Duke, and made available to journalists in Owerri on Monday.

Duke described the law as being unconcerned about individuals, noting that refusing to honor a genuine and lawful police invitation could result in a forceful arrest to bring an individual to justice.

He went on to say that the APC in Imo, led by Mr MacDonald Ebere, would not tolerate “acrimonious rantings” about Gov. Hope Uzodimma’s inability to manage the state’s security situation.

He urged Nigerians, particularly social media handlers, to stop spreading rumors and unfounded allegations intended to defame the governor and the state government.
“The APC wholeheartedly supports the governor and government of Imo in their endeavors.”

“As a party, we urge Nigerians to avoid trite shenanigans and doomed efforts to link Gov. Uzodimma to his own self-inflicted and merited predicament.”

“We commend the governor for his equanimity, maturity, and honorable disposition in the face of rash provocations and rascality from persons purposefully working against the overall interest and well-being of the Imo people,” he said.
