Barr. Orji Uchenna Orji, Commissioner for Information and State Orientation clarifies issues:
The attention of Ebonyi State Government has been drawn to a social media post captioned ” Nigeria Army & Police jointly abducted IPOP Elder EGBE Nwamini in his residence dated 22nd January,2021.
We wish to state categorically that there is no truth in that post. It is a deliberate ploy by mischief makers to sell a dummy to the public and create tension for the gratification of their political motives.
Elder Egbe Nwamini was only inivted by Security Officials over a case of cultism reported against him by a member of the public and has long been released on bail. For the records he was never quizzed in connection with any IPOP involvement
The State Government is committed to protecting lives and property of the citizenry and is unwavering in it’s determination to bring to justice criminal elements in the society no matter their political affiliations or social classifications.
The good people of Ebonyi State and indeed members of the public are therefore enjoined to discountenance the faceless publication as an empty distraction that has no connection with the truth whatsoever.
