The Imo State Government has said it is aware of what it terms futile efforts by some people to whip up public sentiments against it over the arrest of Mr. Uche Nwosu in an Anglican Church.
In a statement signed by Hon. Declan Emelumba, the state’s Commissioner for Information and Strategy, the government said it believes that no stone should be spared in the effort to rid Imo of criminality and banditry.
while responding to Okorocha’s accusation that Imo govt was involved in the arrest of his son-in-law, Uche Nwosu, He said that Senator Rochas Okorocha, was in a panic, indicted himself and now speak incoherently and should wait for the outcome of the arrest of his son-in-law’s arrest.
The government further stated that it will not support any form of disrespect for a place of worship by security agencies with an admittance that Mr Nwosu’s arrest within the church premises could have been avoided and therefore stands condemned.
However, while government regrets the manner the arrest was made, Mr Emelumba stressed that since it was purely a security matter, the full reason such an action was taken will eventually unfold and perhaps guide the public better.
The Imo State Government appealed to those negatively affected by the action to bear with the security agencies, adding that Governor Hope Uzodinma holds the Anglican Communion in very high esteem and will never support any act that will disrespect her reverential status as a place of divine worship.
