Imo chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) says the arrest of Uche Nwosu, former governorship candidate in the state, was merited.
The party asked “Nigerians to refrain from trite shenanigans and doomed efforts to link Gov. Uzodimma with self-imposed and merited predicament,” of Mr Nwosu.
This is contained in a release signed by the APC state publicity secretary, Cajetan Duke, and made available to journalists in Owerri on Monday.
Mr Duke described the law as not being a respecter of persons, noting that refusal to honour police invitation warrants forceful arrest.
He added that the APC in Imo, led by MacDonald Ebere, would not condone “acrimonious rantings” that point to Governor Uzodimma’s inability to manage the security situation in Imo.
“We commend the governor for his equanimity, mature and honourable disposition in the face of rash provocations and rascality from persons intentionally working against the overall interest and wellbeing of Imo people,” Mr Duke said.
He advised Nigerians, especially social media handlers, to desist from peddling rumours and unfounded allegations aimed at defaming the governor and the state government.
