The Anambra state police command on Friday night, arrested and detained seven of its officers and members of the State Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) Awkuzu over the detention and subsequent murder of one Mr.Ejike Bob Manuel.

The arrest was sequel to a petition and representation made by a Human Rights Advocacy Organisation, the Joint Legal Action Aids (JLAA), to the Inspector General of Police, Commissioner of police, Anambra State, Attorney General Federation, Attorney General, Anambra State and the Director General, National Human Rights Commission (NHRC).

The arrested officers were named as Adolphous Dimgba, Gabriel Imafidon, Sergeant Chukwudili Oyenka, Pat Amadike, Usman Bala Hamza, Theodore Igiede , and Amaechi Ebele Okonkwo.

Also, arrested and detained was one Jerome Aghachukwu who allegedly masterminded the arrest and murder of the deceased.

The rights group had in its petition, reported how the deceased was arrested on the report of Aghachukwu over a business transaction involving importations of pharmaceutical equipment wherein, he alleged that the deceased broke his words on the amount he was to pay him from the sales and commission.

On account of this, the deceased was allegedly detained and tortured in SARS facility on February 16, 2006, and later died from the after effect of the gruesome torture. According to the group, the police outfit, had refused to release the deceased body for autopsy until a combined team of JLAA lawyers led by Kingsley Ughe, IG monitoring team and team of journalist stormed the SARS office.

Subsequently doctors were said to have conducted autopsy, which revealed the cause of death as a rupture of a kidney with tear measuring 0.124cm, a development reportedly caused by the “heavy physical torture to the deceased during the night of 16th of February 2017.”

The group said it was already preparing papers to file an action at the federal High Court against the police and the killer officers involved in this murder for Monday, next week.

“We shall demand excruciating, punitive and exemplary damages. We have recovered the deceased G wagon vehicle, three million Naira, handsets and other valuables prised away from the deceased.

“Today we are engaged in a deadly struggle for those who would intimidate, torture, and murder people for exercising the most basic freedoms. If we are to win this struggle and spread those freedoms, we must keep our own moral compass pointed in a true direction. SARS is as dangerous as a terrorist organisation.

“We insist that relevant authorities must look into the sociology of SARS. SARS is a tortured organisation. An organisation, tortured by the broken bones and spilled blood of innocence.
“The healthy man does not torture others - generally it is the tortured who turn into torturers.

“Brave men do not gather in the name of policing authority to torture and murder innocent individuals, so gagged and bound he cannot make even feeble resistance or defence.

“JLAA shall not relent in his determination to ensure that Ejike Bob Manuel and other victims of state abuse and lawlessness get justice.”
