#Uche Nwosu’s Arrest: You should apologise to Anglican Church, CAN tells Police


By Luminous Jannamike – Abuja

The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has said the police are the ones who owe the Anglican Church an apology for the gestapo manner in which they reportedly arrested the former Chief-of-Staff to Imo Governor, Uche Nwosu, while in church for the outing service of his late mother.

CAN said though it would never hinder the Police or the security agencies from performing their legal duties which include the arrest of suspected criminals, it would equally not condone the desecration of worship centres by operatives.

In a statement on Thursday night signed by Pastor Adebayo Oladeji, the Special Assistant on Media and Communications to the CAN President, the umbrella Christian body countered the effort by the Imo State CAN Chairman, Reverend Eches Divine-Eches, who tendered an apology to the Anglican church for the disruption of its service during Nwosu’s arrest last Sunday.

Instead, CAN’s national leadership said there was no reason for any of its officials to apologize over the incident because the apex Christian body was not a party to the horrendous action.
