Anambra State governor, Willie Obiano has sacked his SA on Security and former OC SARS Awkuzu branch, James Nwafor.
Willie Obiano has given in to the demand of #ENDSARS protesters who called for the sacking of CSP James Nwafor Rtd, a man who has been accused of being responsible for several brutal murders and disappearance of young men in the state while he was heading the SARS unit.
The governor while addressing #ENDSARS protesters in Awka on Thursday made his decision known while describing the demands of the protesters as genuine.
A statement released by Gov. Obiano’s twitter handle @WillieMObiano said: “Today, I joined youths of our dear State to say #EndPoliceBrutality and I support them because they did not only vote and defend their votes in my 21-over-21 victory but all their requests are genuine and germane, and I oblige to honour them all.
I felt honoured being in their midst to share in their feelings, and I made it clear that:
First, Federal Government has disbanded SARS but I will personally visit all SARS offices in Anambra State to ensure that anyone being held is released, immediately; Second, James Nwafor, former OC SARS in Anambra State is sacked and will be prosecuted; Third, I’ll ensure that the Presidency does the needful to ensure a better life for our youths, for us, ndi Anambra and for our nation.
The allegations against him will be investigated and he’ll likely be prosecuted.
He’s alleged to have ordered and sanctioned the killings of several young men during his time as the OC SARS Awkuzu. One of his alleged victims was Chijioke Iloanya.
“Chijioke Iloanya’s family is finally getting justice for the extrajudicial killing of their brother. This will not bring back Chijioke, but I’m hoping that it brings them healing” a friend of the family said
