Govt Agents Arrest Sen. Okorocha’s Son-In-Law, Uche Nwosu at Mother’s Thanksgiving



It has been confirmed that Uche Nwosu, son-in-law of  Senator Rochas Okorocha, was indeed arrested by agents of government. Before now, there was confusion at St Peters Anglican Church, Eziama Obire in Nkwere Local Government Area of Imo State, on Sunday, where Nwosu 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.”



Insiders said that those that came for Nwosu were agents of Imo State government, without further details.



Police Public Relations Officer in Imo, CSP Mike Abattam, confirmed 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.
