Protesters denied access to the dreaded Awkusu SARS office as they tried to exhume corpses

Thousands of youths who marched to the dreaded Awkusu SARS office in Anambra on Friday were denied access as they insisted on searching the compound.

It was gathered that the youths’ insistence followed the belief that some suspects were usually killed and buried inside the compound housing the SARS offices.

One of the protesters who spoke with our correspondent said, “We gathered that they usually bury some killed suspects inside their compound. We want to exhume their bodies so that their loved ones would know that they are dead and give them burials.”
