I was accused of supplying IPOB with arms —Uche Nwosu


Former Chief of Staff to Imo State Government and son -in-law to former Governor Rochas Okorocha, Mr Uche Nwosu said yesterday that he was accused of supplying arms to militants.This allegation was contained a petition made to the police by yet-to-identified individual.

Nwosu made this known in Owerri, while narrating the experience of his arrest by security operatives at St Peter’s Anglican Church Eziama-Obiere, in Nkwerre Local Government Area of Imo State during the outing service of his late mother, Jemimah Nwosu, last Sunday.

He explained that he was taken to the Police Tactical Squad office in Abuja, where he was told by the police that “Someone wrote a petition against me (Nwosu), that I was supplying arms to militants and giving them money.”

He added that there was no time that the police officially invited him to come and answer questions from the petition against him.

He therefore demanded from the Inspector General of Police, IGP, Usman Alkali Baba to investigate the owner of the private jet which was used to fly him from Enugu to Abuja.

Nwosu spoke as the former governor of the state and his father-in-law Rochas Okorocha expressed shock over Nwosu’s experience in the hands of his abductors.

This is even as the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, yesterday, described as a sacrilege, the alleged abduction from a Church service, condemning the act in its entirety.
