This was disclosed by the spokesperson for the party, Ogbonna Nwuke, who said that Nwiye was abducted at his residence on Sunday.
“We have been briefed that he was taken into captivity at a time when well-meaning people were celebrating the resurrection of our Lord, the Son of God.”
Meanwhile, the party has demanded the unconditional release of its chieftain.
APC blamed Nwiye’s abduction on the inability of the Rivers state government to guarantee appropriate security protection at the grassroots. The party called on security agencies in the state to do everything necessary to rescue their kidnapped member.
