Ugwumba Uche Nwosu, Senator Rochas Okorocha’s son-in-law, who was arrested on Sunday by security agencies during a church service at St Peter’s Anglican Church Umunwokwe Village Eziama-Obaire Nkwerre LGA of Imo State, has been released unconditionally by the Nigeria Police.
Nwosu disclosed this in a statement on Monday by his media aide, Chikezie Nwadike, stressing that he did not spend the night in police cell.
The statement also dismissed insinuations that Nwosu was abducted in a church because he had refused to honour many police invitations extended to him.
Nwadike said, “I have spoken with him and he extended his greetings to all of us out there.
“While we await police report on why the abduction and arrest, we call on everyone to remain calm and focused because God is in charge of the whole situation.
“The act of desecrating the House of God we all know a direct affront and challenge to God Almighty. We leave God to do his fight because vengeance is of God but to all Christians, does it now mean that the Government has no more respect for God and does it now mean that the House of God is no more a place one can take refuge? God prove your answers .
“Ugwumba Uche Nwosu is a perfect gentleman who has great deal of respect for constituted authorities and has never for once caught up in civil disobedience. There was never an invitation and if anyone says otherwise, let the person come forth with evidence.”
Security operatives had on Sunday invaded the church in Nkwerre during service and abducted Nwosu, amidst sporadic shooting.
