Peter Obi denies stopping Judicial Panel on Police brutality in Anambra
The former governor of Anambra state and Vice presidential hopeful under the Peoples Democratic Party in the 2019 presidential poll, Peter Obi has denied securing any court order stopping Judicial Panel of Enquiry on police brutality, extra-judicial killings and other related matters.
Peter Obi made this clarification in a statement issued by his media aide, Valentine Obienyem on Friday evening and made available to ElombahNews.
The statement reads, “Peter Obi did not secure any injunction to stop the Probe for SARS
“I saw the news that Mr. Peter Obi has secured court injunction to stop the probe of SARS.
“Kindly disregard the news as fake. There is absolutely no truth in the news.
“Mr. Peter Obi is not SARS and could not have secured any injunction in a matter where he has no locus. For your information, it is SARS and not Peter Obi that is being probed. It is only enemies of progress that try relentless to link Obi to the probe that he is not part of.”
It could be recalled that the Judicial panel hinted last year that the former governor will appear before the Panel following allegations leveled against him by a victim of the disbanded infamous Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) and owner of the demolished Upper Class Hotel in Onitsha, Chief Bonaventure Mokwe
