Uche Nwosu has stated that he thought the security operatives who apprehended him at St Peter’s Anglican church Eziama Obaire in the Nkwerre Local Government Area of Imo state last Sunday, December 26 would assassinate him.
Nwosu revealed his experience to newsmen in Owerri, the state capital today, December 28.
The politician alleged that the order for his arrest was given by Hope Uzodinma, the current governor of Imo state.
He recalled how he was arrested in church, stripped half-naked, handcuffed and taken to Enugu airport where he was placed in a chartered airplane.
Nwosu said he thought the men were going to assassinate him from the way he was being handled.
He said: “When they drove off, they started making calls in Hausa, and unknown to them I understand Hausa. They were telling one Shaba, who is the Chief Security Officer that they have got me.
“At Umuaka, they stopped and ordered that I should get down. At that point, I thought they were to assassinate me. They bundled me into another vehicle and they drove off.
“When we got to Owerri, three other vehicles drove straight to the government house and the one carrying me drove towards Okigwe Road, and I asked them where they were taking me to but they never responded to me.
“They drove towards Okigwe and stopped. At this point, I thought they wanted to assassinate me. They asked me to remove my cloth, handcuffed me, snapped me, made a video, and sent it to the governor’s CSO.”
