Man Narrates The Harrowing Experience He Had In Awkuzu SARS Cell

A Nigerian man recognized as Chijioke Eruchalu, has tod his story, revealing his harrowing expertise with SARS males.

Eruchalu who informed his story on Twitter with the deal with @mr cjayerus, yesterday penned down a nerve-racking expertise his pal Bonaventure Chokwebundu Mokwe, had with the operatives of the Particular Anti-Theft Squad, SARS, in Anambra State.

In not lower than a twenty-five paragraph story, Chijoke chronologically suffused Mokwe’s expertise at SARS cell in Awkuzu on his twitter deal with.

Chijioke identified professionally as an Environmental Biologist, wrote:


“We began from the final flooring of the lodge, room after room and many of the rooms had been occupied by friends which are largely merchants from Cameron.

”We lastly obtained to the primary flooring however earlier than then, one of many officers had demanded that we present them room 102.

Once we obtained to room 102, the door was locked and I turned and requested Dr Nwankwo Justin whether or not a visitor paid for the room the day earlier than and he mentioned sure. I requested in regards to the manifest of the lodge lodging and he mentioned that he had submitted the police copy to SCIB on the Central Police station Onitsha which each and every lodge is obligated to do earlier than 7A.M. each day. I instructed him to carry our personal copy which he hurriedly did and we confirmed it to the police. The visitor gave his title as John Obi.

The officers insisted on breaking the door and I pleaded with them to anticipate the visitor for a while. the shoppers of Higher class lodge are predominantly merchants from Cameron and Niger republic  and that they carry lots of money with them. That has been the case since 1974 the lodge was constructed due to its nearness to fundamental market Onitsha.

Earlier than I may end, they broke the door and entered the room. We noticed black polyethylene baggage ( waterproof) all around the room with an open suitcase. The officers then opened the wardrobe and introduced out a bag. Contained in the bag was two human skulls with sand throughout them and two rusted and unservicable AK47 weapons.

I used to be promptly leg chained on each legs and Dr Justin Nwankwo was handcuffed. I used to be taken to the surface hall of the lodge and made to kneel down whereas holding the reveals they usually took footage. At that level, from the faces I noticed amongst the gang with axes and matchet , I then knew the place the entire incident got here from, hazzard of land enterprise together with motor park duel.

By  the time I used to be led downstairs, virtually many of the police officers has all headed again to the station except for the ones that accompanied me. The gang had been surging to obviously mob me. Fortunately for me, I got here to the workplace with my Q56 infinity SUV and the leg chain gave me some area to drive.

As I entered my SUV and began the Engine and pushed  down the car auxiliary, I rotated to the cops and informed them that I already know what occurred and that if the gang rushes at me, I will replenish the MORTUARY on the common hospital Onitsha together with myself. As I surged on, one of many cops opened the car door and began firing quickly within the air. That fairly properly saved me and a few of these folks.

From the Space command Onitsha, we headed to Awkuzu Sars with Csp (title witheld) and his staff. Dr Justin Nwankwo and the workers had been packed in a single car whereas I personally, Csp James Nwafor and three different Sars officers had been in one other car .

Once we obtained to the current ROAD SAFETY workplace alongside the Enugu/Onitsha, earlier than you get to Awkuzu Sars,  the Csp rotated and mentioned to me:

  1. You’ll by no means see that lodge once more.
  2. He’ll kill me whether or not I’m harmless or or not and that, if I’m harmless, might my blood be on him and his youngsters. Once we then entered Awkuzu correct, Dr Justin Nwankwo was stored of their torture corridor whereas I was taken behind the torture corridor the place the Csp largely does his killing.

Behind the very torture corridor , I used to be chained to an area weight lifting machine . After some interval the Csp got here again with some officers together with one different officer I latter found to be his deputy by title Csp (title witheld).

The Csp inspected the reveals for a while and requested me the next questions:

  1. The place the reveals recovered in my workplace and I mentioned no, it was recovered in a visitor room.
  2. Do now we have lodge manifest and I answered sure that we submitted the police copy early within the morning however that my supervisor has a reproduction copy.

He inspected the reveals but once more and mentioned that the skulls seems to be previous and that the weapons has not been in use for a very long time, why all in one bag he requested  whereas the remainder seems to be on. As a turned to go away,  he muttered; this seems to be like mago mago.

His statement didn’t cease the Csp. Not lengthy after that, one of many officers got here again with an already written assertion and I used to be requested to signal. I refused saying that I’m fairly able to writing my very own assertion.

My torture commenced instantly. I used to be overpowered and my shirt was faraway from me.

They then wrapped my neck with the shirt after which adopted it’s going to a inexperienced rope they usually began pulling from each ends. Gents I used to be gone. They then appended my thumbprint on the ready assertion that substantiated the allegations in opposition to me. In the meantime Dr Justin Nwankwo was seeing hell within the torture corridor.

After I finally regained consciousness, I discovered myself of their loss of life chamber referred to as cell 5. It’s the cell that’s reserved for these the Csp will kill. Congested and very soiled. Meals will not be allowed in the very Cell except periodic loafs of bread which is shared in slices. One bucket of water day-after-day for ingesting.

The shock of my life occurred on the second or the third day of being within the very cell 5. There’s this small boy of between the age  of 19 and 22, a second 12 months Engineering pupil of FUTO.

He calls me uncle. He informed me that he’s an solely son of the mom and that his supremely wealthy uncle, primarily based in lagos needed to annex his personal father’s portion of household land and that his father is late. His resistance in opposition to the uncle landed him at Sars as a kidnapper and armed robber.

Then, it was both within the second or third night time  of my staying in the condemned cell, the door of the cell opened late one night time. What I noticed was a contact gentle. Names had been being referred to as one after the opposite, 17 names in all together with the small boy they usually had been ordered out and the door closed again.

It didn’t take greater than 15 minutes, gunshots crammed the air, nne moh nne moh is all I may hear.  The 17 younger males had been slaughtered chilly blood.

I misplaced it that night time. My system simply shut down.

It was both the 4th or fifth day that the door opened one morning and it was the identical deputy that referred to as my title and informed me to come back out. No power was left in me as a result of I’ve not eaten actual meals besides periodic slices of bread. He purchased me one thing to eat together with a malt drink.

I used to be subsequently transferred to  cell 1. After some days, I used to be referred to as into the Csp’s workplace to see my spouse and my lawyer professor Umenweke Nnama Meshach. I attempted to get Dr. Justin Nwankwo to affix me however they refused.

As time went on, I found that the case has hanged as a result of there was no co.

I used to be subsequently transferred to  cell 1. After some days, I used to be referred to as into the Csp’s workplace to see my spouse and my lawyer professor Umenweke Nnama Meshach. I attempted to get Dr. Justin Nwankwo to affix me however they refused.

As time went on, I found that the case has hanged as a result of there was no complainant. Even the Csp voiced out some frustration when he mentioned, the lodge demolition was too quick. This is similar person who informed me that I’ll by no means see the lodge once more.

He grew to become unusually pleasant in the direction of me however I knew it was a harm management .The latitude then allowed me to review what really obtains on the AWKUZU Sars. I witnessed a number of the tortures and I grew to become conscious of some their circumstances together with what actually occurs within the place.

  1. I witnessed an incident when a younger buying and selling apprentice was arrested by Sars on behalf of the grasp over a lacking 250,000 or thereabout . He broke his spinal twine and died when he was subjected to what they name HANGING TORTURE. He was written off as an armed robber.
  2. I witnessed an incident throughout what they name verification excise or one thing like that. All of the inmates will probably be introduced out within the open yard and all will probably be seated on the bottom. When your title known as, you will arise and reply some questions. There’s this boy that was referred to as up and the Csp requested him; Are you from Ogidi ? earlier than the boy may end saying no, James shot him with a silver colored pistol which is all the time with him. The boy bled to loss of life proper there.
  3. I additionally witnessed the apply of shifting inmates in the course of the night time to Nneni for the needs of dodging official inspection of the place. Nneni Sars annex is one other abattoir. Hunger of inmates and outright taking pictures is the rule their. If the federal government undertakes the excavation of the perimeter of the Nneni anex, The Ezu river will probably be a joke in comparison with what will probably be found.

I  noticed different killings on the very place. Each morning, the inmates of CELL 1 will probably be referred to as to hold a lifeless physique or two behind the torture corridor. Any person that has been detained by Sars for an prolonged time period will let you know precisely that.

Let me make clear a difficulty right here, the Csp doesn’t launch confirmed kidnappers or armed robbers, he kills them however, with a negotiated enormous sum of money, James will at most, cost the individual to courtroom. Outright launch of the individual is off so far as

I do know. What I additionally know is that, he will be purchased to do a selected job, loss of life inclusive, if the worth is true.

Let me cease right here however there are extra particulars. If the federal government of the day is desirous of appeasing the victims of Sars, the federal government ought to provide immunity to some officers that served beneath the Csp and they’ll lead investigators to the precise location of corpse dump within the neighborhood of Nneni. Among the Sars victims can at the very least get better the physique of their family members for burial.
