KanyiDaily had reported how police arrested Uche Nwosu during the outing service of his mother’s burial at St. Peter’s Anglican Church, Eziama-Obaire, Nkwerre Local Government Area of Imo State on Sunday, December 26.
Eyewitnesses said the masked policemen who came with a military van fired live bullets in the air and at the church building before carrying out their main task to arrest Nwosu.
Although Nwosu, a former Imo governorship candidate of Action Alliance (AA), was released from custody hours after he was picked up, the circumstances of who ordered his arrest are still unclear.
Speaking on Channels TV on Tuesday, Okorocha said Nwosu’s arrest gave a glimpse into how Governor Hope Uzodinma carries out criminal acts with policemen attached to Imo State Government House.
He said, “What is happening in Imo state is too serious that Imo state looks like it is becoming a Banana Republic where there is complete lawlessness, where people live in fear and not sure of what happens the next day.
“No day that passes without somebody being killed and people being harassed and it seems everybody is living in fear and nobody can speak out.
“It appears to most people unfortunately, as if though the happenings in Imo state have some kind of backing from Abuja and that is what I could figure out, and there seems to be enmity between the people here and the presumed federal government just because of communication gap.
“But thank God, this is getting to be now unravelled with the recent happenings, especially with arrest of Ugwumba Uche Nwosu in the church.
“My concern is that there is something that has to be unravelled and I am sure that you must have been hearing of unknown gunmen in Imo state.
“This is where the story of unknown gunmen started and most people have been wondering the mystery behind unknown gunmen. It appears though to me now that unknown gunmen have finally been unravelled with the recent happenings.
“What are the unknown gunmen from what happened to Uche Nwosu? Unknown gunmen now were a set of policemen from government house who — without the consent of the commissioner of police, without the consent of the inspector-general of police, without the DIGs in charge — on their own, from the instruction of government of the Imo state, led by Hope Uzodimma and his CSO, Shaba, that gives directive to go and arrest people at will and lock them up at will. Sometimes, whereabouts of these people are not known.
“Gradually, something is being unravelled and that is the good news about this. And to shock you and to shock the whole world is that this same Shaba and his governor are in the business of getting policemen from government house to go and execute an unholy act and when they run into trouble, they quickly say it is police.”
KanyiDaily recalls that the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) had also condemned the arrest of Nwosu, saying it was now clear who created unknown gunmen to demonize it and its security arm, the Eastern Security Network (ESN).
