Charles Ugwu, the suspended Imo state Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has been arrested by Imo state police.

Ugwu, according to report, was arrested over alleged involvement in the burgling, looting and vandalization of the party office along Okigwe road Owerri, the Imo state capital.

It would be recalled that the embattled chairman was said to have been suspended by the party a few days ago, a development he did not take with a pinch of salt.

But Ugwu, in an interview, said he still remained the chairman of the party and had not erred in any way to warrant his suspension.

A PDP source told Impartial Observers that the said chairman, a few days ago, burgled the party secretariat and looted properties belonging to the party alongside his surrogates.

“Engr. Charles Ugwu was suspended a few days ago. Having been suspended, he went to the office with thugs and vandalised party properties and carted away valuables from the offices.

“This is a criminal offence and the police on hearing such, arrested him for invading the office and looting the place dry. The police should investigate him and remand him for criminality.”

But a police source confirmed the arrest and disclosed that he (Ugwu) had already written a statement and admitted to visiting the office and collecting important files few days after being suspended.
