An anonymous police source told Punch he was tracked to a hotel in Ejigbo where he was apprehended at 1:00 am and now in the custody of the DSS.
Information Nigeria had reported how Nwajagu, on Friday, threatened to invite IPOB members to Lagos, justifying the move in the wake of attacks on some Igbo people in the State.
“IPOB, we will invite them. They have no job. All of the IPOB will protect all of our shops. And we have to pay them. We have to mobilise for that. We have to do that. We must have our own security so that they will stop attacking us in the midnight, in the morning, in the afternoon.
“When they discover that we have our own security, before they will come, they will know that we have our own men there. I am not saying a single word to be hidden. I am not hiding my words, let my words go viral. Igbo must get their right and get stand in Lagos State,” he had said.
