Obinwannem News ”SARS killed my little brother” - Man tells panel

Mr. Akabuike has faulted the former SARS boss, Nwafor, for killing his younger brother, Mr. Ekene Akabuike, a final year student of Statistics at the Nnamdi Azikiwe University.

Akabuike who appeared before the panel on Tuesday said the killing of his younger brother who was the last child of the family in 2004 caused the death of their mother because the late Ekene was very close to their mother.

According to him, “On June 3rd, 2004, they picked my brother in his room and we were told they would arraign him in court the next day, but they killed him and told us that he had been wasted.

“I learned they were in the compound to look for one Chinedu who was the son of the landlord, but when they didn’t see him, they took Ekene. He is the last son of my mum and very dear to our mum and our mum had to die because of that experience.”

He told the panel he was seeking N100 million compensation over the loss, but the panel chairman, Justice Veronica Umeh (Rtd) stated jocularly that the panel had only N200 million for compensation to all victims and cannot give half of it to one petitioner.

The matter was adjourned for further hearing to Tuesday next week.
