Some yet-to-be identified gunmen wearing army uniform have reportedly kidnapped Mr Uche Nwosu, a former APC Gubernatorial candidate in Imo State.
Nwosu, a son in-law to former Imo state Governor, Chief Rochas Okorocha, was reportedly kidnapped inside St. Peters Anglican Church, Nkwerre, and bundled into the booth of a getaway car.
According to witnesses, the gunmen drove away amidst serious shooting into the air.
Uche Nwosu was in the Church for the outing service of his mother who was buried during the week.
The police in Imo State are yet to make any official statement on the abduction.
