Uche Nwosu, a governorship aspirant and son in-law of Rochas Okorocha has narrated his ordeal after he was whisked away by security agents at St Peter’s Anglican church Eziama Obaire in the Nkwerre Local Government Area of the state last Sunday, December 26.

He stated that he was stripped half-naked while describing his arrest as politically motivated.

Speaking with newsmen in Owerri, the state capital today, December 28, Nwosu, a son-in-law to a former governor of the state, Rochas Okorocha, said his arrest was sanctioned by the state governor, Hope Uzodinma.

Recounting his ordeal, Nwosu said he was arrested in church, stripped half-naked, handcuffed, taken to Enugu airport, and boarded a chartered aircraft to Abuja on the orders of the state governor.

He said that he had no hands in the insecurity in the state, saying that the young man who accused him in a viral video of giving him money to escalate insecurity in the state was asked to implicate him.

Nwosu, in an emotional-laden voice, said those who “abducted me were masked, hijacked me in church and manhandled me; they ordered me to lie on the floor in the vehicle and one of them rested one of his legs on my head.”

“When they drove off, they started making calls in Hausa, and unknown to them I understand Hausa. They were telling one Shaba, who is the Chief Security Officer that they have got me. At Umuaka, they stopped and ordered that I should get down. At that point, I thought they were to assassinate me. They bundled me into another vehicle and they drove off.

When we got to Owerri, three other vehicles drove straight to the government house and the one carrying me drove towards Okigwe Road, and I asked them where they were taking me to but they never responded to me. They drove towards Okigwe and stopped. At this point, I thought they wanted to assassinate me. They asked me to remove my cloth, handcuffed me, snapped me, made a video, and sent it to the governor’s CSO.

We continued until we go to Enugu airport. We waited for about 90 minutes before a chartered flight arrived. We boarded and we landed in Abuja. We moved to force headquarters and we did interviews. They accused me of sponsoring insecurity in Imo State. I want to thank the IGP who intervened and ordered my release.” he said.
