A Twitter Influencer identified as @Chude_ has been reportedly picked up by police operatives in Anambra State.

A Twitter user, @Jack_ng01 disclosed the information via his Twitter page at 6:25 pm on Saturday.

In a series of tweets, Jack said, “Chude @Chude_ has just been kidnapped by state CID in Anambra some few minutes ago. Nothing must happen to him.

“So, they are not allowing us see Chude… Chude must not sleep in the state CID this night guys #FreeChudeNow”.

Jack further alleged that the state government “picked Chude up” claiming he “committed cybercrime”.

THE WHISTLER had checked Chude’s Twitter page and observed that he had been updating his page consistently with events and happenings across the 28 states where elections were held since Saturday morning.

He said, “Police do not kidnap, please. But I will make an enquiry and get back to you”.
