The Imo State Police Command has refuted reports circulating that Mr Uche Nwosu, a former candidate of the Action Alliance (AA) at the 2019 governorship election in the state, was abducted by unknown gunmen.

This was made known in a statement in Owerri issued by the state’s Police Public Relations Officer, CSP Michael Abattam, who confirmed that the son-inlaw to the former governor of Imo State has been arrested by the force and is in their custody.

The Police Public Relations Officer in the state, CSP Michael Abattam, confirmed the incident in a statement in Owerri.

Recall that it was earlier reported that Mr. Nwosu was kidnapped at St. Peter’s Anglican Church, Umunwoke village, Eziama-Obaire, Nkwerre Local Government Area on Sunday. However, Abattam said: “This is to inform the general public that Chief Uche Nwosu was not kidnapped but was arrested by the police and Imo state police command is aware of the arrest and presently he is in police custody.


“This is to refute the earlier news that has been making the rounds on social media that he was kidnapped by unknown persons/gunmen.”

The police spokesman reiterated the command’s commitment to ensuring the safety of lives and property in the state and advised the general public to always shun fake news.


The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) gathered the former commissioner was picked up during a thanksgiving service in honour of her late mother, Mrs Jemaimah Nwosu.


A source who pleaded anonymity said the late Mrs Nwosu was laid to rest on Dec. 22.
