The Coalition of United Political Parties (CUPP), has demanded the release of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has demanded the immediate and unconditional release of the party’s new media director in Imo state, Mr. Ambrose Nwogwugwu, who was reportedly arrested by the Department of States Service (DSS).
Nwogwugwu was reportedly arrested on Wednesday for allegedly calling Governor Hope Uzodimma a ‘Supreme Court Governor’ on social media.
Ikenga Imo Ugochinyere, CUPP Spokesman and APP Party National Chairman, who demanded the release said he will institute legal action if he is not released or charged to Court as required by the laws.
Ugochinyere said only the court of law that can decide who is guilty or innocent.
“DSS should Release Ambrose Nwogwugwu immediately or Charge him to Court. This is the sacred principle of Rule of Law upon which our Constitutional democracy is built. We have gone beyond detention of people while hunting for evidence or at the pleasure of occupants of offices which are in themselves ephemeral. Imo is too big for funny characters to think we can return to idiAmin style.
“I am from Imo and as a great apostle of rule of law, I have instructed my lawyers to launch enforcement of fundamental rights suit if the young man is not released or charged to Court as required by our laws. It is only the court of law that can decide who is guilty or innocent and should be detained or released and certainly not those who used the law Court to baptise an election they never won,” he said.
