The Eastern Updates had earlier reported that the Security Consultant for Ebubeagu and the State Chairman, All Progressive Congress, APC, Chief Stanley Okoro Emegha had on Monday explained that the State Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Publicity Secretary, Chika Nwoba was never abducted by Ebubeagu security outfit as being speculated by some ‘misinformed’ persons in the State.
In a chat with Newsmen in Abakaliki, the APC Chieftain stressed that Chika Nwoba who had issues to answer as regards the propagation of fake news was merely arrested by Ebubeagu and handed over to the Police for further investigation.
According to him, propagation of fake news and fake news itself was more dangerous than the activities of unknown gunmen operating within the South East region.
