|Ikenga Ugochinyere, CUPP Spokesmanâs life is in danger â CNPP says by Godday Jubilee: 11:05 am On June 22, 2020|
The Conference of Nigeria Political Parties (CNPP) has raised alarm over the safety of the spokesperson of the Coalition of United Political Parties (CUPP), Ikenga Imo Ugochinyere, saying his life is in danger.
Ugochinyere was reportedly arrested on Thursday, June 18 by the police in Abuja over the comments he made about the controversial Infectious Disease Bill. Ugochinyere had released a statement in May, condemning the bill and also alleging that some forces were planning to give the lawmakers some money to quickly pass the controversial bill.
The House of Representatives denied the allegation and also invited him to come forward to substantiate his claim. He never did. The lawmakers said a warrant of arrest would be issued for him if he failed to appear before the house. Ugochinyere immediately approached a Federal High Court and secured an order from the court barring the police from arresting him.
However last Thursday, he was reportedly arrested and has been in police custody.
At a press conference over the weekend, the CNPP Secretary-General, Willy Ezugwu, alleged that investigations by the parties shows Ugochinyere is kept in a crowded cell of about 40 people, exposing him to COVID-19.
Speaking further, Ezugwu said
He called on the Inspector General of Police to immediately obey the order of the court or step aside.
