President of National Association of Nigerian Students, NANS, Comrade Chuks Okafor, has condemned in its totality, the action of Governor of Imo state, Hope Uzodinma, in the attack on the 2019 gubernatorial candidate, Comrade Uche Nwosu, and well as church disruption.

Speaking in press conference in Abuja the NANS president said the attack is devilish, forceful and uncivil.

While speaking he said “It is no longer news that Comrade Uche Nwosu, a former gubernatorial candidate in the 2019 election came under attack in a church while undertaking the funeral rites of his late mother. The attack which initially was suspected to be a kidnap because of the gestapo style employed by the men; men on masks, fierce looking, dare devil, forceful and uncivil. 

“In an effort to douse the tension, the police shamefully claimed the responsibility of the kidnapping of Comrade Uche Nwosu in church. Confirmed sources has it that the police men came from government house to carry out the dastardly act.

“We have watched with disdain the way and manner in which Governor Hope Uzodimma had conducted himself as governor, it will be correct to say that he’s running governance with high handedness and gross tyranny. 

“A governor who clamps down on every citizen, and leaders of the state is creating a dysfunctional society. No wonder why the state has gone from the peaceful Imo state to the haven of crisis. 

“Kidnapping, attack and scores of killings have suddenly become a regular occurrence in the state since governor Hope Uzodimma assumed office as governor. “

Comrade Okafor

Comrade Chuks Okafor added that, “Not too long ago, he sent the same police to unlawfully harass and humiliate Owelle Rochas Okorocha. They handcuffed him, paraded him on the streets on the order of the governor just to score cheap political points. We stand by Owelle Rochas Okorocha.”

He Called on President Muhammadu Buhari to call Governor Hope Uzodimma to order before he finally destroys Imo state and lead the state to where all men come to bear arms. While thanking the Inspector General of Police for conducting immediate investigation into the unlawful kidnap and attack of Comrade Uche Nwosu, we appeal that he beefs up security to the Okorocha’s and Nwosu’s families to avoid attacks on them by “unknown gunmen”.

However, he said that Nigerian Student will not hesitate to come all out against Governor Uzodimma if he attempts any further attacks on these comrade families. “It’s worthy to note that, Comrade Uche Nwosu is a former official of NANS and Owelle Rochas Okorocha is a life Patron of NANS, we shall defend them in the face of oppression and intimidation.
