Security operatives have arrested former chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Prof Maurice Iwu.

Family sources said Iwu was arrested in Owerri, the Imo State capital on Sunday and whisked away to Lagos.

The source said the security operatives came from Port Harcourt and linked up with the Imo State Commissioner of Police, who telephoned Prof Iwu and invited him to Owerri.

When Iwu came for the meeting, he was whisked away by security operatives and taken to the office of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) in Lagos.

It was gathered that in Lagos, Prof Iwu was interrogated, release and asked to report back today.

On reporting today at the EFCC office in Lagos, Iwu was taken into custody, with his phones impounded and switched off. He is yet to be released.

When the spokesman of the EFCC, Mr Tony Orilade, was contacted on the development, he denied the story.

In the past 4 years, we have seen headlines of how other countries will soon abandon fuel consuming cars and start using electricity. We have seen headlines of economies booming or new inventions happening all over the world. Pictures of Nigerians who go abroad to enjoy a better life with better infrastructure and better standard of living.
Has it occurred to us that in the past 4 years, the only serious headlines that has graced our eyes in this country is who efcc arrested and who they did not arrest. Ghost amounts that had been recovered that we can't see both in cash and infrastructure. While the world has advanced in 4 years, we have been chasing ghosts. Father , help us in this country. Don't let this curse of a man remain with us any longer. We gave done our part but you know you have the final say. Remove the worm that has spoilt this nation that we may come alive again. Give us a leader whose words are your words and whose heart beat is your heart beat. Thank you. Amen.

I will continue to blame Jonathan for conceding defeats. If Nigeria returns to war ,He caused it by mere handing over power to the dangerous Cabals that would rather have anything spoiled than to concede power .
