How Obiano Shielded And Facilitated The Transfer Of James Nwafor Back To Awkuzu

obiano and James Nwafor

Faced with no complainant and to release us will be a fatal embarrassment to Peter Obi because of his haste in demolishing UPPER CLASS HOTEL, James called up Dr Justin Nwankwo and myself one morning for court.

Like I stated earlier, we were charged for killing one Nnaelue Okafor and remanded in the prison. We subsequently dismantled the whole contraption by locating the parents of the Very Nnaelue Okafor at Ifite Ogwari town with the help of one Mr Odogwu Odogwu blog based in Awka and Okechukwu Nwanguma of NOPRIN . The mother of the deceased filled an affidavit in court stating that, the son Nnaelue Okafor was the MASSOB commander at Silas works Fegge Onitsha who was arrested by the AWKUZU Sars on the 29th of April 2013 and that she never saw her son till date . She mentioned how she gave her farm produce to a Sars officer at AWKUZU to enable the release of the son. If the son was released, the bail bond for the very release should be tendered.

It turned out that, the very Sars officer she was giving her farm produce, was equally our own IPO . Suffice to say that the police and the state government disappeared after that.
When we came out of prison, the onslaught on James Nwafor and AWKUZU Sars commenced immediately. Amnesty international anchored by one Damian Ugwu, the astronomically rugged Okechukwu Nwanguma of NOPRIN, the ever stubborn Justus Uche Ijeoma, Dr Justin Nwankwo and myself released all the Cylinders on AWKUZU Sars and James Nwafor.
This led to a BBC African focus program by the Amnesty international. Justin Nwankwo featured in the program were he narrated our ordeal in the hands of Csp James Nwafor. Aljazeera news network aired Justin Nwankwo’s presentation of our case intentionally.

Not long after that, the same Amnesty international facilitated a world press conference at Abuja with the police hierarchy in attendance . Victims of James Nwafor narrated their ordeal before the world. After the press conference, James Nwafor was transferred to Bauchi state from AWKUZU Sars.

We kept a tab on his movement. Not long after, we got an information that he has been transferred to Enugu state from Bauchi state and Willie Obiano was behind the transfer. Before you know it, He was back at AWKUZU Sars compliment of Willie Obiano.
It was Justus Ijeoma that called me one early morning to tell me that James is back at AWKUZU Sars and I did not believe it. I then called my contact officer at the place and he equally told me that he was eating rice in his office. We subsequently went back to the trenches yet again with Justus leading the onslaught. Within the very period, Willie Obiano continued to shield him. Eventually he was removed again and only for him to resurface as an SSA to Willie Obiano on security after retirement.


Before then, on the 26th of December 2016, Igwe Godfrey Ezechukwu, the Okwuluora of Umuchu sent one Ichie Mathias Ekeariri to invite me to his palace. When I got there, he informed me that Victor Umeh came to his palace and complained that I was disturbing the individual the state government invited to fight crime in the state by name James Nwafor. He reminded Victor Umeh of the injustice I suffered and the relationship he had with my father and the need to address the injustice.

Then, at a funeral occasion at Umuchu and Victor Umeh was present, one Onunkwo Ikenga Tony took the microphone and called on Victor Umeh to intervene in the injustice against me.
Two or three days after, Victor Umeh arranged a meeting between myself , Willie Obiano and himself at the government house. Willie Obiano asked me if I had any problem with Peter Obi before my hotel demolition incident and I said no, not at all. He then said that Peter did not leave any money and that the 75 billion naira talk was an accounting gymnastics. The best he could do was to give me a contract and I will recover from there. That was the last time I heard from Willie Obiano.

It is very clear that Willie Obiano knew all that is to know about James Nwafor and cannot claim innocent in any form.
