Anambra State Governor, Chief Willie Obiano, has sacked his Senior Special Adviser on Security, Mr. James Nwafor in fulfilment of the demand of #EndSARS protesters

Our correspondent reports that Nwafor was formerly the Commander of SARS in Anambra State and had severally been accused of killing and maiming many youths across the state.

The protesters had on Wednesday blocked the Anambra State Government House and the Enugu-Onitsha Expressway, insisting that Governer Obiano must address them.

Addressing the protesters on Thursday afternoon at the Government House, the Governor said he would take their demands to President Muhammadu Buhari while also fulfilling the ones within his powers to handle.

The protesters, who were delighted with the Governor’s pronouncements also marched to the popular Aroma Junction where they blocked the highway, denying motorists access to the road.

Meanwhile, the Governor in a tweet on Friday said Nwafor has been sack and will be prosecuted.

“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, also 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: ” Firstly, the 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.

“Secondly, James Nwafor, former OC SARS in Anambra State is sacked and will be prosecuted;

“Thirdly, 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,” he said.
