While parading suspects on Friday, the Commissioner of Police said out of the 109 suspects, 35 were cultists arrested at Hotpoint guest house in Bakassi local government area of Cross River state.
He further revealed that others paraded were suspected felons, armed robbers, thieves, arsonists, those brought in for unlawful possession of firearms, conspiracy as well a native doctor.
CP Akande also explained that the Cross River State command recovered 4 Keke NAPEP, 3 motorcycles, 2 locally made guns with 3 cartridges, five pumping machines, charms, and other unidentified items suspected to be Indian hemp from the suspects.
The CP in his word said “It is our mandate and responsibility to keep updating you of our activities and our resolve to confront all forms of criminalities across the state which is yielding positive results.
“In doing this, the Command is determined to assure the general public that their constitutional Rights will at all times be respected as citizens of this great country. Our goal is to provide an enabling environment for everybody to go about his/her lawful businesses”.
He encouraged the general public to stay calm that the command will leave no stone unturned in her effort to rid the state of the activities of miscreants.
“I, therefore, use this medium to warn all criminal elements and perpetrators of heinous crimes to steer clear, as they will not be spared despite their satanic schemes.
“Finally, let me also reiterate that the IGP’s initiative/vision to criminalities across geo-political zones with the formation of Operations Restore Peace (RP) is already on course in the state and will be sustained maximally. It is on this premise that the Command enjoins Cross Riverians and good-spirited citizens to join hands with the Police to drastically reducing crime to the barest minimum” he pleaded.
