Multiple reports claim that the leadership of Ugwumba Movement, a political structure campaigning for the 2019 Governorship ambition of Imo State Governor's son-in-law, Ugwumba Uche Nwosu led by Jeff Nwaoha, Chairman Imo State ENTRACO, yesterday reportedly attacked a popular Catholic Archbishop, AJV Obinna during the church event.
It was gathered that the Archbishop AJV Obinna escaped the attack with the help of Catholic Priests, Knights of the Catholic Church and Christian fathers, who barricaded and shielded the Archbishop from being beating up, after rain of abuse and insults to the Archbishop by the alleged attacker.

According to Ifeanyi Cy Njoku, the problem allegedly started when the Catholic Archdiocese, during commendation service admonished people to go out and get their permanent Voters Card (PVC) and vote wisely in the 2019 general election.
He complained about bad roads in the state insisting that despite the ministry of happiness Imolites cannot be happy with bad road. An APC chieftain reportedly took microphone from him to defend the government. A PDP follower also came and called for change from APC misrule.
It was at that point Jeff and his thugs rushed to the alter to take the microphone from the Archbishop who withdrew to his seat and priests and Christian fathers struggled to keep them out.
Uche Nwosu and Nkechi Okorocha sat there watching the spectacle without stopping Jeff as Jeff pointed at Archbishop in the face and rained insults on him as the service went on.
