ACTION ALLIANCE NATIONAL CHAIRMAN KENNETH UDEZE ABDUCTED FEW HOURS AGO BY GUNMEN
.. CUPP RAISES ALARM OVER ABDUCTION OF AA CHAIRMAN KENNETH UDEZE, WORRIES OVER HIS SAFETY.
.. . CUPP ACCUSES SEN. ROCHAS OKOROCHA AND UCHE NWOSU FOR BEING BEHIND THE ABDUCTION AND KIDNAP OF THE ACTION ALLIANCE CHAIRMAN, KENNETH UDEZE.
… SAYS AA CHAIRMAN HAD COMPLAINED OF THREATS FROM PEOPLE BELIEVED TO BE LINKED TO FORMER GOVERNOR ROCHAS OKOROCHA AND UCHE NWOSU.
The CUPP has raised alarm over the news of the abduction and kidnap of the National Chairman of one of its member Parties, Action Alliance, Mr. Kenneth Udeze a few hours ago by gunmen suspected to be kidnappers.
The saddening news is coming amidst the information from Mr. Udeze not long ago that he had been receiving threats from persons believed to be linked to Sen. Rochas Okorocha and his son in law Uche Nwosu over the insistence of the National Chairman that the Party is not a Party to the election petition filed by Uche Nwosu.
We are genuinely worried over the safety and wellbeing of Mr. Udeze knowing that for politicians to get desperate enough to the extent of kidnapping political opponents then urgent action from the Police and all other security forces backed by the prayers of Nigerians can be the only saving grace of Mr. Udeze.
We demand the immediate release of Mr. Kenneth Udeze from captivity and call on all security agencies in Nigeria to swing into action and secure his release from his kidnappers.
We also demand the Sen. Rochas Okorocha and Uche Nwosu cross check with their thugs and direct the immediate release of Mr. Udeze before the long arm of the law catches up with them. We warn that nothing untoward should happen to Mr. Kenneth Udeze.
