Anambra State Governor, Chief Willie Obiano on Saturday visited the three offices of the defunct Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS).

The offices are in Ekwulobia, Neni and Awkuzu.

austinbriggsblog gathered that the governor during the visit granted bail unconditionally to three detainees illegally held by the defunct unit.

Speaking during the exercise, Governor Obiano said, “the Commissioner of Police in the state has released everyone detained illegally, and everyone remanded by the order of the court, will remain there until their cases are determined.”

Obiano had on Thursday sacked his senior security aide, James Nwafor, who was formerly a SARS boss in the state before his appointment.

Obiano revealed that on Monday, he will inaugurate a panel that will entertain public petitions on the activities of SARS in the state, adding that the panel will be headed by a retired Chief Judge.
