Something is absolutely wrong in Imo State, the people, Hope Uzodinma and his government.

The brazen arrest of Uche Nwosu, a former governorship candidate of Action Alliance in the 2019 election and son-in-law of Rochas Okorocha in his community while worshipping at St. Peters Anglican Church on a Sabbath is appalling.

He was attending a thanksgiving service in honour of his deceased mother who was buried a few days before the ugly incident. 

It is condemnable and must be so. The police with a clear understanding of the location of their target defiantly invaded a holy ground as hands were lifted up in adoration to the Almighty God. They opened fire and scared the hell out of worshipers.  The church was thrown into confusion.

The holy place was unrulily defiled, the ambience of the church ruptured and shattered by mere mortals on the orders from above. Those who gave that instruction from above including those who obeyed should be prepared for the uncommon visit of the wrath of God. If not now definitely in the hereafter.

Why must the church be a vintage choice to arrest a man that was never invited by the police for interrogation? Why must the police open fire in an atmosphere of worship and holiness?

Is Uche Nwosu armed while in the church? It is not fair dragging the body of Christ into the murky waters of politics.  Uche Nwosu is resident in Imo. His office is in Imo. At no time was he fingered as constituting any security breach in Imo. Therefore, it beats one’s imagination why of all places for arrest, the church was the most ideal. There is more to this than meets the eyes.

It is high time the police showed some level of professionalism in the discharge of their duties. They should not be seen as political hunting and barking dogs of those in power and moneybags.

The raging political wildfire burning in Imo deserves greater urgent attention. People of goodwill and conscience within and outside the state should wade into this matter before Imo is finally consumed by the inferno.

The political supremacy battle between former governor Rochas Okorocha and the incumbent Hope Uzodinma has torn the peace in Imo State into shreds. This bickering if not adequately checked will negatively affect governance and development, attract more public spats and squabbles. Is the state not sliding into anarchy? In the ensuing melee, it is societal development and the ordinary people of Imo who suffer the brunt. 

The politics of “tigbuo, zogbuo” going on in Imo is becoming one too many. It has led to many deaths, affected peace, development and brotherliness.
