Leading civil rights advocacy body, the Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria (HURIWA), has called for the immediate arrest of Abia State Governor’s Chief of Staff, Mr. Anthony Agbazurere, over the trending viral video in which he was “conspicuously seen displaying ostentatious lifestyle by brazenly abusing the National Currency of Nigeria by spraying them on the controversial Onitsha, Anambra State based self-acclaimed prophet Mr. Chukwuemeka Ohanamere also known as “ Odumeje” inside the hallowed chambers of the government house in Umuahia, Abia State.”
The rights group said in a statement issued on Monday in Abuja that aside the Central Bank of Nigeria and the Office of the Inspector General of Police Mohammed Adamu, the Chairman of the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission and the Code of Conduct Bureau ought to order the arrest and prosecution of the public official working for governor if Abia State for displaying a conduct unbecoming of the law and ethics of holding such a high publicly funded office in Nigeria being a nation that is governed by law.
“We hereby call on the Inspector General of Police Mr. Mohammed Adamu to salvage the nation’s waning image and to tell the World that Nigeria is not a banana Republic whereby some persons are above the law just as he is charged to arrest both “Prophet Odumeje and Mr. Anthony Agbazuere the chief of staff to governor Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia and prosecute both of them for abusing the Naira in such a brazen display of lawlessness. The reported suspension of the Chief of Staff is only but a political statement. The law is very clear that such offences must be prosecuted by the police. The IGP should act decisively and professionally,” HURIWA stated.
