A statement released by Gov.

I felt honoured being in their midst to share in their feelings, and I made it clear that:
First, Federal Government has disbanded SARS but I will personally visit all SARS offices in Anambra State to ensure that anyone being held is released, immediately; Second, James Nwafor, former OC SARS in Anambra State is sacked and will be prosecuted; Third, I’ll ensure that the Presidency does the needful to ensure a better life for our youths, for us, ndi Anambra and for our nation.
Long Live Anambra Youths!, Aluta continua!”
