Uche Nwosu, son-in-law of the former Governor of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha, has asked the Inspector General of Police, IGP, Usman Alkali Baba to investigate persons behind his arrest.
Recall that security operatives on Sunday arrested Nwosu in a church service at St Peter’s Anglican Church in Umunwokwe village, Eziama-Obaire Nkwerre Local Government Area of the state.
The former Governorship candidate was, however, released on Monday by the Nigeria Police Force.
Speaking with reporters on Tuesday in Owerri, Nwosu also urged the Police boss to probe the owner of the private jet which was used to fly him from Enugu to Abuja.
He stated that when he arrived in Abuja, he was accused of supplying arms to militants and giving them money in a petition.
Nwosu disclosed that the police didn’t officially invite him to come to answer questions from the petition against him before he was arrested.
He said: “The petition the Police said was from somebody, that their reason for arresting me was alleged that I was supplying arms to militants and giving them money, the whole plan was cooked up in govt house. The security men attached to the government house one Shaba was behind this plot.
“The plot was to humiliate me and malign my image. No security man from the Abuja or state command came for that operation. Those security officers were all security men attached to the government of Imo state.
“Because a normal policeman cannot behave the way they did. They came shot inside the church which no professional police officers could do it. They shot anyhow. They are a killer squad from the government house.
“Nobody invited me or called me on phone I would have answered I did not receive any invitation from the police. So, just like that they came arrested me handled me like a criminal and treated me like I have committed any offence.
“I want the Inspector General of Police, IGP, to investigate the person who ordered for my arrest and the owner of the private jet and who paid for the private jet that took me from Enugu state to Abuja. They took me to the tactical squad office where the IG, now send somebody to come and interview me and I gave my statement, from what I gathered the IG, was not properly briefed on what was going on.”
