Former Imo State gubernatorial candidate and son-in-law to former Imo governor Rochas Okorocha, Uche Nwosu, has been arrested by the police.

Mr Nwosu was taken in by gun-throttling police operatives on Sunday while attending his late mother’s thanksgiving service at St Peter’s Anglican Church Eziama-Obaire Nkwerre LGA of Imo state.

In a viral video posted on Facebook, the armed officers stormed the church, shot sporadically into the air to scare people and then dragged the politician away with them.

Nwadike Chikeze, a media aide to Mr Nwosu confirmed the arrest to the Gazette by phone Sunday afternoon.

“Actually we were in Church service when about four men dressed in black walked into the church. Two were stationed at the exit door while two moved into the church to search for their target. So when one of them saw Ugwumba (Mr Nwosu), he identified him and told him to stand up. Then he applied force and dragged Ugwumba out of the church. They took Ugwumba’s security men unaware so it would be so unwise of time to engage the men in a shoot out since they already had their target. So they started shooting inside the church. They were shooting to kill. The congregation fled for their lives and they dragged Ugwumba out, put him in a vehicle and left in their convoy,” Mr Chikezie said.

Spokesman for the police in Imo, Michael Abattam, confirmed the arrest in a statement on Sunday but did not give any reason for the development.
