The All Progressives Congress, APC, Imo State has warned the former governor of the state , Rochas Okorocha against soiling the image of the governor , Hope Uzodimma over the arrest of Uche Nwosu.
The party in a statement issued on Monday and signed by the party State Publicity Secretary, Cajetan Duke .
APC described the arrest of Nwosu as lawful , saying the party was aware that the law is not a respecter of any individual as nobody is above it
Nwosu had been arrested by policemen over alleged criminal activities .
The statement read “it is equally true that refusal to honour genuine and lawful police invitation will warrant forceful arrest to bring the individual to book.
“The APC, therefore advised Rochas Okorocha to henceforth desist from tarnishing the noble image of Governor Uzodimma with frustrated vituperations, false claims and crocodile tears, aimed at securing the sympathy of Nigerians and boldly face the music.
“For too long, Rochas Okorocha held Imo to ransom with the false belief that the entire State is his personal estate, alas! The rhythm has changed and his chickens have come home to roost.
“That Uche Nwosu is his son-in-law does not confer on him any immunity from arrest and prosecution as marrying the daughter of a former Governor is not immunity of any kind.
“The APC, staunchly supports the Governor and Government of Imo State in the efforts to restore sanity, peace, order and sustainable economic development in the State.
“As a party, we advise Rochas Okorocha to refrain from his trite shenanigans and doomed efforts to link Distinguished Senator Hope Uzodimma with his self-imposed and merited predicament.
“We commend the Governor, Distinguished Senator Hope Uzodimma 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.”
