One-time head of Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) at Awkuzu, , Mr. James Nwafor, has refuted a statement credited to him on relationship Governor Peter Obi, describing it as a “mischievous, blatant falsehood, misleading and malicious publication.”

Reacting to publication which sought to link Obi to killings at Ezu River during Obi’ tenure as governor, Nwafor said in a statement issued over weekend: “My attention has been drawn to a mischievous, blatant falsehood, misleading and malicious publication purported to have been made by me wherein it was alleged that I had a conversation HE Peter Obi about a case when I was the OC SARS Awkuzu. The mischief maker alleged that I made a confession to God knows who.

publication is not only frivolous but false in fact and provocative. I have never in my entire life had voice conversation HE Peter Obi. I have never changed since 2005 and my call history is there for verification.”

Calling on Nigerians to disregard the publication, Nwafor said: “I implore well-meaning public to disregard the evil and vindictive publication which is definitely the handwork of mischief makers. The author of this misleading and malicious information need to be arrested, properly investigated and prosecuted, please.”

Nwafor was said to have been transferred of Anambra, but the present Governor, Chief , requested him back. On retirement, he was Special Adviser on by Obiano who, however, recently sacked him in the wake of the #ENDSARS .
