Anayo was rescued by the police after being beaten mercilessly by the mob on Saturday September 14, following an allegation of causing the disappearance of the manhood of a man he shook hands with.
The Enugu state police spokesperson, Ebere Amaraizu released a statement confirming the police awareness about her issue and that they are working to unravel the mistake.

Tribunal sacks Kaduna lawmaker, orders for re-run in 22 polling units

The order followed the Tribunal verdict sacking Mr. Morondia Tanko, candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the March 9 election for Kagarko State Constituency who was declared winner of the poll.
Mr. Nuhu Shadalafiya former deputy Speaker of the State Assembly and candidate of the All Progressive Congress (APC) had challenged the victory of Tanko and PDP for Kagarko State Constituency at the Tribunal.
The tribunal, headed by Justice Adamu Suleiman, in a unanimous decision ordered for a re- run in the 22 affected polling units across two wards in the area.
A member of the tribunal, Justice Maimuna Abubakar who read the judgment, said the petitioner had proved his case beyond reasonable doubt.
According to her, the petitioner had petitioned the Tribunal alleging that the election was characterized by malpractices such as over voting, manipulations and violence.
She said the petitioner had provided proof that all the alleged electoral malpractices were committed in the affected polling units,
Part of the judgment reads: “that election be re- run in two wards, polling unit 001 to polling unit 018 because the margin between the first respondent and the petitioner is 2,318 votes as the petitioner got 24,008 votes and the first respondent got 36,302 votes.
“However, the result of the over voting filed in the petition was 9,702 votes for the first respondent and 2,128 for the first petitioner thus showing over voting in the election.
“Hence the need for a re run in the 22 polling units of Kagarko Local government of Kaduna State was delivered as the judgement by the tribunal. “
Speaking with Journalists shortly after the judgement, Shadalafiya said the tribunal shunned technicalities and allowed justice to prevail.
“Because the truth of the matter was that, there was over voting and we proved that beyond reasonable doubt because it was well spelt out.
“The margin of the over voting was about eleven thousand and I benefited with two thousand votes while he benefited with nine thousand.
“And today his 9,000 votes were removed, my 2,000 votes also removed. I was left with over 21,000 while he was left with 16,000 votes.“
