Man Who Tweeted Against Governor Soludo, APGA Arrested, Moved to Abuja
Due to his tweets criticizing Prof. Chukwuma Soludo, the governor of Anambra State, a Nigerian man has been detained and transferred to Abuja.
On Saturday, ardent Labor Party supporter Nnamdi Chude claimed that Soludo’s party, the All Progressives Grand Alliance, or APGA, was responsible for the rigging of the House of Assembly election.
He stated that some thugs took the voting boxes and that Soludo had a key role in the fraud. He said that such action would bring Anambra back to the time of Dr. Chinwoke Mbadinuju, the previous governor.
Then, police officers in Onitsha detained Chude and transported him to the state capital of Awka.
Meanwhile, a message by the Press Secretary to Anambra State governor, Mr Christian Aburime avowed that the suspect has been moved to Abuja on Sunday, and that the governor neither had a hand in his arrest nor aware of his crime.
Aburime said: “The Commissioner of Police, Anambra State Police Command has confirmed to the Governor of Anambra State, Prof Chukwuma Charles Soludo, CFR, that one Mr Nnamdi Chude was arrested yesterday (18/03/23) in Anambra by the Cyber Crime Unit of Interpol and taken to Abuja today (19/03/23).
“Anambra State Government has no information about any specific allegations or basis of his arrest.”
From results already declared by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, Governor Soludo’s APGA won a majority of the state assembly seats in the state, followed by the Labour Party.
