The arrest of Uche Nwosu, the son-in-law of former Imo State Governor Rochas Okorocha, by the police at St. Peters Anglican church Nkwerre has continued to elicit reactions.
This time, it is from the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) in Imo State.
The umbrella body of Christians apologised to the Anglican Church over the invasion of the church by security operatives.
CAN Chairman in the state, Reverend Eches Divine-Eches, tendered the apology on behalf of the religious body while addressing reporters in Owerri.
“The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Imo State chapter hereby apologises to the Anglican Church over the recent incident of the arrest of Uche Nwosu in one of its parishes.
“As the umbrella body of the Christians in the state, we support efforts by security agents to bring any person fingered of involvement of any form of criminality in our state to book,” he declared.
“The security agencies must be mindful of the mode of operation to avoid offending the sensitivity of our people and unwillingly giving detractors the opportunity to rubbish their good work.”
On Sunday, police officers had stormed St. Peter’s Anglican Church, Eziama-Obaire in Nkwerre Local Government Area of Imo State, sparking outcry in parts of the country.
