PHOTOS: Okorocha laments how police treated son-in-law, Nwosu after arrest
Uche Nwosu, the son-in-law to ex-Governor of Imo State Rochas Okorocha, was handcuffed after he was arrested on Sunday.
Nwosu was arrested at St Peter’s Anglican church at Eziama Obieri in the Nkwerre Local Government Area of the state while he and his family members were on an outing service after the burial of their mother, Jemimah Nwosu.
According to Okorocha, Nwosu was arrested without a warrant and was treated like a criminal.
He said “Uche Nwosu, my wife and daughter were at the church for a service when a group of men in police uniform while the sermon was ongoing, started shooting. In the course of their activities, they pushed my wife and they tore my daughter’s 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 the 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 an arrest without a warrant and humiliating members of my family is unfortunate. Most security operatives in Imo know nothing about the arrest. The IGP could only do this on high-level misinformation from Hope Uzodinma. Over 100 gunshots to arrest Uche Nwosu.”
Okorocha said Uzodinma had shown tremendous hatred for his family, adding that lawmakers who attended Nwosu’s mother’s burial a few days ago were suspended.
