The arrest was made barely 24 hours after Governor Nyesom Wike accused Dagogo of sponsoring the attack on the PDP's secretariat in the state and declared him wanted.
Dagogo, who represents Degema-Bonny Federal Constituency at the House of Representatives, was arrested at the PDP zonal secretariat in Port Harcourt.
Governor Wike had alleged that Dagogo sent suspected cultists to attack the secretariat during the screening of National Assembly and State House of Assembly aspirants.

Dagogo, however, denied the allegation. He said he was never at the PDP Secretariat where aspirants for National and State Assembly were being screened since he is a governorship aspirant.
