Opposition group, Coalition of United Political Parties (CUPP), has told former Imo State governor, Rochas Okorocha and his son-in-law, Uche Nwosu to cross check with their thugs and direct the immediate release of Mr. Kenneth, chairman of the Action Alliance (AA), who was kidnapped on Friday in Abuja by armed men.
CUPP spokesperson, Ikenga Imo Ugochinyere made the demand in a statement on Friday as he reacted to the news of Udeze`s kidnap, saying Okorocha and his son-in-law should do the needful before the long arm of the law catches up with them.
The opposition group requested the immediate release of Udeze from captivity and called on all security agencies in Nigeria to swing into action and secure his release from his kidnappers.
The statement read partly, “The saddening news is coming amidst the information from Mr. Udeze not long ago that he had been receiving threats from persons believed to be linked to Sen. Rochas Okorocha and his son in law Uche Nwosu over the insistence of the National Chairman that the Party is not a Party to the election petition filed by Uche Nwosu.
“We are genuinely worried over the safety and wellbeing of Mr. Udeze knowing that for politicians to get desperate enough to the extent of kidnapping political opponents then urgent action from the Police and all other security forces backed by the prayers of Nigerians can be the only saving grace of Mr. Udeze.”
Cupp warmed that nothing untoward should happen to Mr. Kenneth Udeze.
