The Online Media Practitioners Association of Nigeria (OMPAN) Abia State Chapter has criticised the gestapo arrest of its Chairman, Comrade Ugochukwu Nwankwo by the Abia State Police Command.
Comrade Ugochukwu Nwankwo was arrested by men of the Nigerian Police, Abia State Command on Tuesday around his office at Item Street Umuahia.
In a statement issued on Tuesday by the Secretary of Abia Online Media Practitioners, Izuchukwu Nwokoma, the Organization questioned why the Abia Police Command will unleash its men on law abiding citizens, adding that its Chairman is a responsible Abian cum Nigerian who has sued for peace in the country.
