Imo State Police Command has released Uche Nwosu, the son-in-law to the former governor of the state, Senator Rochas Okorocha.
Nwosu’s release from police custody was contained in a statement his Special Adviser on Media, Nwadike Chikezie, issued on Monday.
FirstNews had reported how the Nigerian Police Force arrested the Imo gubernatorial candidate at a church service at St Peter’s Anglican Church Umunwokwe Village in Eziama-Obaire Nkwerre LGA of Imo State on Sunday, December 26.
But in the statement on Monday, a day after the arrest, Chikezie said he had spoken with Nwosu and that he reassured the residents of his welfare.
He said, “While we await the police report on why the abduction and arrest, we call on everyone to remain calm and focused because God is in charge of the whole situation.
“The act of desecrating the House of God we all know is a direct affront and challenge to God Almighty. We leave God to do his fight because vengeance is of God but to all Christians, does it now mean that the Government has no more respect for God and does it now mean that the House of God is no more a place one can take refuge? God prove your answers.”
