Former Vice President and PDP’s presidential candidate in the last election, Atiku Abubakar, has called for the immediate release of the spokesman of the Coalition of United Political Parties (CUPP), Ikanga Ugochinyere.
It was reported that Ugochinyere was arrested by the police because he had alleged that the House of Representatives had collected a bribe of $10 million from American billionaire, Bill Gates, to pass the controversial Infectious Diseases Control Bill. A bill that is currently before the House and his arrest is believed to have been ordered by the Speaker.
However, Atiku, in a tweet, had called for the immediate release of Ugochinyere.
Atiku tweeted: “We are a nation governed by the rule of law and not of the jungle.
“Tyranny and dictatorship are inimical to a democratic order. I hereby call for the immediate release of the spokesman of CUPP, Barr. Ikenga Ugochinyere.”
