During the meeting, Barr. Onwuasoanya narrated his ordeal within the five weeks of his surprised abscence. He explained how he was taken from his residence on May 30, 2020 .
He confirmed that he was picked up by some security men as reported but he got released thereafter.
After the shocking encounter with security agents which left him rattled, he promptly sought medical attention to attend to the traumatic experience.
He disclosed that he received treatment all the while until he returned home while expressing his regret for his inability to reach out to anybody given that he lives alone and had lost his phones in the process.

We rejoice that we have found him.
An injury to one is an injury to all. 
Long live Nigeria
Long live Anambra State
Long live ANPC
Solidarity forever.
