افتراضي Cultists, Robbers Meet Dead End in CrossRiver.

In its determination to rid the State of crime, the Cross River StatePolice Command has arrested a number of suspected cultists and criminals who, penultimate week, seized the city of Calabar by the throat and bestride the streets like demigods, stealing, maiming and killing at will.

Making the disclosure at the Diamond Hill Headquarters of the Command, the State Commissioner of Police, Osita Ezechukwu said the suspects were arrested in Calabar, Ogoja, new Netim village in
Odukpani and Bendeghe in Boki local government area of the State.

He added that water-tight security strategies have been put in place to enhance successful clam-down on criminals, and warned that there would be no hiding place for men of the underworld.
The Police Boss reiterated that “within the period under review, a number of suspected criminals were arrested, some of whom have been charged to court and convicted”.

He said the recent incident was the arrest of one Uwem Akpan Robson and Godwin Udo Udo who allegedly robbed Chief (Mrs) Ekpo Bassey Itoyo of her N2 million at Calabar Road.

According to him, “on July 5, 2012, the Police at Atakpa Division arrested a gang of Robbers who operated with an ash colour Mercedes Benz 190 car along Calabar Road. The gang robbed a woman of N2m as she just came out from Union Bank after withdrawing the money.

“Their frantic effort to leave the traffic hold-up aroused the suspicion of undercover Policemen who got them arrested. When the vehicle was searched, a ‘Ghana Must Go’ bag full of clothes, charms
and the sum of N2, 000,000 cash were recovered.

“Suspects took the Police to their hideout in Calabar South where other gang members were arrested. Three vehicles were recovered in the operation”. The police boss said, some cultists who escaped from police manhunt in Calabar were also arrested in an uncompleted building in their hideout at Netim Village, in Odukpani.

Those arrested were four males and a female. “Items recovered from them included one locally made pistol, three matchets, one human skull and two Nokia phones”, he further explained.

The Commissioner added that one Oyo Paul Adariku was also picked up by his men at 20 Calabar Street Ogoja with RAV 4 Jeep, two different number plates and two different set of particulars.

On May 20, 2012, the Police also swooped on a 8-member gang of armed Robbers who invaded Iso Bendeghe in Boki from Gbedue village in Logo local government area of Benue State. They were said to have entered Cross River riding three motorbikes.

The Police Boss enumerated items recovered from the suspected Robbers to include: three locally made revolver pistol, twenty-two live cartridges, three 7.62 live ammunition and thirteen GSM phones. Other items recovered, according to the Police, were one big loud speaker, the sum of N46, 340 cash, one expended cartridge and three torch lights.

Mr Ezechukwu warned that “the police would not tolerate wanton destruction of lives and property in the name of cultism”, and advised cultists to renounce their trade. Few weeks ago, residents of the ancient city of Calabar
could not sleep with their two eyes close due to activities of people suspected to be members of two notorious confraternities that were at each other’s throat in what looked like a battle of
superiority.

Mbukpa, Nelson Mandela, Bedwell, Watt Market, and Bassey Duke Streets suddenly became ghost streets as residents elected to keep indoors for fear of the menacing young men who paraded the streets like hunters in search of preys. These men wielded assorted types of weapons such as guns, axes, cutlasses, and clubs.

Our reporter, who monitored the unfolding scenario, gathered that at least ten suspected members of the two rival cult groups were confirmed dead, while at least 93 suspects were picked up by men of the Nigerian Army who raided the scenes of the cult clashes.

Eyes witnesses said as the war ravaged the Peoples Paradise, property worth millions of naira belonging to residents of these places were vandalized by hoodlums who appropriated the incident to their advantage.

But the Commissioner reiterated that the police force was still in the manhunt for perpetrators of the hideous deeds, and called on all Nigerians to be involved in community policing, stressing that “everyone has a stake in the security of his community”.
