Senator Rochas Okorocha, former Imo State Governor has disclosed that police officers who arrested his son-in-law Uche Nwosu earlier today, humiliated his wife, Nneoma and daughter while carrying out their mission.

Speaking from his residence in Owerri, the former Governor said his wife was pushed down and his daughter’s clothes torn to pieces in public.

“My wife was pushed down and my daughter’s clothes were torn into pieces by the policemen who came into the church to arrest Uche Nwosu without any warrant of arrest.

“I want to know the offence my son in-law has committed that they rough-handled him, because I’m yet to be informed.

“I have called the Inspector-General of Police. His number was switched off. I have called the Commissioner of Police, he said the order came from above.

“Uche Nwosu, my wife and daughter were at the church for an outing service when a group of men in police uniform, while sermon was on going, started shooting.

“In the course of their activities, they pushed down my wife and they tore my daughter clothes. No warrant of arrest. No invitation.

“We suspected kidnapping at first. Many people were injured while running. Uche Nwosu was dragged into a bus carrying Imo State government number.

“They were identified as policemen from Imo State Government House by their colleagues attached to Uche for the burial. I got the CP who said that IGP approved his arrest.

“The shock of such arrest without warrant and humiliating members of my family is unfortunate. Most security operatives in Imo know nothing about the arrest.”

“I don’t know what they framed him up for. IGP could only do this on a high level misinformation from Hope Uzodimma.

“Over one hundred gunshots to arrest Uche Nwosu. What kind of a ruthless behavior on innocent citizen of Nigeria?

“Hope Uzodimma has shown tremendous heat to me and members of my family. Lawmakers who attended the burial were suspended.

“I am waiting to hear the offence of Uche Nwosu. Recall that Hope Uzodimma said he is going to name sponsors of insecurity in Imo State on January 3.

“I Know he has nothing to offer than to cook up a story. Last time he ordered my arrest and one security officer ordered me to enter the pickup vehicle.

“Uzodimma wants to frame me up by all means. Uzodinma has to answer for most of the activities going on.

“Uzodimma must mention the names of those who are responsible for insecurity in Imo State or he should be held responsible for all the killings in the state.

“Uzodimma has framed up something against Uche Nwosu. Buhari should be informed about what is happening in Imo State. Hundreds of citizens are being killed in this state.

“What is happening in Imo State is under-reported. What is happening in Imo is bad.

“How come it is only Abuja and Imo Government House that know about the arrest? Everybody knows that Uche Nwosu can’t hurt an ant.

“I want to know the reason for the attack on a church, why Uche Nwosu should be treated like a criminal and Imo government should provide answers immediately. You can’t be a governor by intimidation.

“Hope Uzodimma deceived Abuja for the arrest of Uche Nwosu. Hope Uzodinma is 1,000 percent responsible for the arrest.

Using diversion for his non performance can’t work. It is either Uzodinma is the IGP or the governor of Imo. I don’t even know the whereabouts of Uche Nwosu.”

However, reacting, to the development, Imo State Governor Hope Uzodimma said Okorocha’s reaction was incoherent.

“All he wants to do is to whip up sentiment among Imo citizens, but he has failed,” the governor said.

Addressing reporters at the Government House, Owerri, Uzodimma who spoke through the Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Declan Emelumba, said Okorocha should have waited for the law to take its course before reacting.

“If Uche Nwosu is arrested, what he (Okorocha) should do is for him to wait and see why he is arrested.

“But he is talking inconherently, and that will not save him.

“What he should do is to wait for the law to take its course.

“All of you went to Orsu and saw the carnage there. I am not saying he is linked to the incident.

“You also witnessed his statement during his mother-in-law’s burial where he invited the youths to protest.

“All these are evidence of his incitements in the state

“The government has no hand in the arrest of Uche Nwosu, but any attempt by Okorocha to use it to cause panic is evidence of guilt and that cannot save him

Okorocha has contradicted himself when he said that the commissioner of police told him that the order came from the Inspector-General of Police and at the time he said that the arrest was ordered by the governor.

“This shows that he is speaking inconherently and that cannot save him,” the governor said.
