Peter Obi didn’t secure injunction to stop probe of SARS – Aide

Peter Obi

Former vice-presidential candidate Peter Obi did not secure injunction to stop the probe of the disbanded police unit the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS), his media aide Valentine Obienyem has said.

Mr Obienyem said in a brief statement on Friday that reports suggesting Mr Obi moved to stop such probe were false.

The statement reads: “Kindly disregard the news as fake. There is absolutely no truth in the news.

“Mr. Peter Obi is not SARS and could not have secured any injunction in a matter where he has no locus. For your information, it is SARS and not Peter Obi that is being probed. It is only enemies of progress that try relentless to link Obi to the probe that he is not part of.”
