“I can’t explain the beating I received. They tied my hands and dragged me on the floor like a common criminal.”

The NLC President denied the allegation by the Imo State government that he is a card-carrying member of the Labour Party (NLC).

“I am not a card-carrying member of any political party as alleged,” he said.
