There was confusion at St Peters Anglican Church, Eziama Obire in Nkwere Local Government Area of Imo State, on Sunday, when Uche Nwosu, son-in-law of  Senator Rochas Okorocha, was arrested.

The manner in which the arrest was done had fuelled speculations that Nwosu was abducted.

In a viral video, gunmen were seen forcing away Nwosu, who was attending the thanksgiving service of his late mother.

Some persons speaking in the background of the video were heard lamenting, “Nwosu has been kidnapped”, “They have abducted Ugwumba.”

But Daily Trust confirmed that Nwosu was arrested on Sunday morning.

Police Public Relations Officer in Imo, CSP Mike Abattam, told our correspondent that Nwosu was arrested. However, he did not give reasons for the development.

There has been a running battle between Nwosu’s father-in-law and Governor Hope Uzodinma.

Nwosu, who contested the 2019 governorship election, served as Chief of Staff when Okorocha was governor of Imo.

Nwosu had buried his mother at Eziama Obaire in Nkwerre Local Government Area, four days ago.
