The Imo State chapter of the Association of Newspaper Sales Representatives has declared one Mr Chuks Ugwuibe missing.
According to a statement signed by the Association's Chairman, Mr Udofia Alex Imoh, Ugwuibe is the sales representative for the New Telegraph newspaper in Imo state.
The Chairman said in his statement that Ugwuibe was arrested while he was on duty and further asked that security forces in the State screen all detainees to know which of them has Ugwuibe in custody.
Imoh's statement reads:
"Ugwuibe was arrested while on his official duties at Orlu. He was actually trying to take his weekly returns from a vendor when he was arrested.
"The association is pained that Ugwuibe's family is passing through a harrowing experience by the arrest of their father and therefore we call on the security forces in the state to screen their detainees, especially those arrested at Orlu last Tuesday, to ascertain if Mr Chuks Ugwuibe, the Sales Representative for New Telegraph in Imo state is languishing in their custody."
