Anambra State Governor, Willie Obiano, on Thursday sacked his special adviser on security, CSP James Nwafor (rtd) and ordered his immediate prosecution for alleged extra-judicial killings and brutality while he the commander of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad of the Nigeria Police in the state.

Nwafor came under fire some months ago on social media after petitions about his alleged brutality towards suspects emerged.

Though he was invited to the Force Headquarters, Abuja for questioning, the Anambra State Governor refused to sack him.

However, Obiano bowed to pressure after #ENDSARS protesters marched t his office in the state capital, Awka, and demanded Nwafor’s prosecution and the shutting down of SARS at Awkuzu and an underground torture centre at Neni.
