The Minister had earlier accused the chieftain of publishing false information against him and his personnel assistant, Mr. Flavour Eze in the social media to the effect that they had contracted the deadly virus.

Last Friday evening, a team of policemen had stormed Oduma community in Aninri Council of the state and arrested Nwanjoku, whose father is the community’s traditional ruler.
