A family in Nibo community in the Awka South Local Government Area of Anambra State has raised the alarm over the disappearance of their father from Economic and Financial Crimes Commission custody in Enugu State.
Speaking with The DAILY VENDOR in a chat on Wednesday, Chukwuneke Chioma Peace, who is the first child of the missing community leader, Elder Emma Nwasor of Obunasator, Nibo, disclosed that she made a post earlier on how her father went missing since 16th December, 2020 from EFCC in Enugu.
Peace, pointed out that 16th January, 2021 will make it exactly one month the family has not heard anything, nor heard from their father.
“EFCC could not provide his lawyer the warrant for his arrest or any petition against him that warranted his arrest. We filed a court case on violation of human right and the court has asked EFCC Enugu to produce him in court, but EFCC refused to do so,” she told The DAILY VENDOR.
“On the first date being 5th January, the court was adjourned to 11th because they did not show up. Unfortunately the court did not sit yesterday (11th) because it was a vacation Judge that was handling the case and we were informed right inside the court that vacation session is over and the Judge therefore will not make it and the matter is now kept pending till another Judge takes over.
“I will like to also say that after much tour to Enugu, they were able to show us that it was EFCC Abuja that signed him off on 18th December 2020 which was the day he was supposed to be bailed but sadly we have gone to both EFCC Abuja headquarters and their zonal office and there was no trace or record of my Dad stepping his foot there” She lamented.
Peace alleged that the EFCC officials are playing a dangerous game with the life of her father and passionately appealed to the powers that be to help her father out.
“We need the help of members of the public in order to find Hon Emma Kanayo Nwasor.
The IPO that arrested him, Joshua Isa of the EG department Enugu EFCC has gone on leave since then and his numbers switched off.”
Continuing she said “I will also like to tell the public that some persons sold the community hectares of land worth millions of Naira illegally without the consent of the community chairman (my missing Dad) and he opposed them because he is the one with the legal documents and they threatened to deal with him thus his disappearance.”
The first child of the missing man who argued that EFCC has no right to detain her father for over 48 hours nor hide his whereabouts from his family passionately appealed to the general public to intervene in the matter before it becomes too late, stressing that the health condition of her father during his arrest weeks ago was bad. She expressed fears it might have deteriorated following his travails.
