Now, the NHRC has summoned Mr Nwafor over the alleged disappearance of the same young man, 28-year-old Chijioke Iloanya.

The missing person was allegedly arrested eight years ago. We gathered that Chijioke, who was 20 years old at the time, was seeking admission to a university. He was whisked away during the child dedication of one of his friends on November 29, 2012, in Ajali, Anambra State.

His family members, who visited the Ajali Police Station in search of him, were informed that he had been transferred to the SARS headquarters.

Nwafor, who initially denied that his men arrested the victim, later claimed that Chijioke had been shot dead by the police, when his family went in search of him at the SARS headquarters.

The NHRC has reacted to the matter through its Twitter handle. It said that Mr Nwafor has been invited to Abuja for questioning. It tweeted,

Other Twitter users commented under the post, retelling their experiences or that of their family members.

The issue was brought to the attention of @NHRCNigeria and we are working with other authorities to ensure this is not swept under the carpet.
