The Imo State Police Command has said it arrested Uche Nwosu, former Governor Rochas Okorocha’s son-in-law.
The clarifications by the Police came on the heels of media reports that Nwosu was kidnapped by gunmen.
A statement by the state Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Michael Abattam debunked the insinuations that Nwosu was kidnapped.
The statement said: “This is to inform the general public that Chief Uche Nwosu was not kidnapped but was arrested by the police and Imo State Police Command is aware of the arrest and presently he is in police custody.
“This is to refute the earlier news that has been making rounds on social media that he was kidnapped by unknown persons/gunmen.
“The Commissioner of Police while using this medium to assure Imolites of the command’s commitment in ensuring the safety of life and prosperity this yuletide seasons, advised the general public to always shun fake news.”
