The State Security Services (SSS) yesterday detained Ambrose Nwaogwugwu for allegedly referring to Hope Uzodimma, the Imo state governor as ‘supreme court governor.’
Mr Nwaogwugwu was invited to report at the SSS office in Imo State. The head of New Media of the opposing Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the state honoured the invitation and has been detained.
Mr Uzodimma, who contested the governorship election of the state under the All Progressive Congress (APC) retrieved his mandate at the Supreme Court after failing at the Tribunal and Appeal Court.
The verdict of the apex court was widely criticised by critics who said it thwarted the will of the people by so doing.
TODAY POLITICS learnt from close sources that chieftains of the opposition party are currently at the state SSS office to get the detainee released.
