The suspects

Nemesis has caught up with a five-man  robbery gang  terrorising parts of Calabar Metropolis in Cross Rive State.

The robbery gang which is also said to specialise in robbing hotels and Point of Sale (PoS) Operators especially in Calabar South Local Government Area of the State, were nabbed by a crack team of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defense Corps (NSCDC).

The State Commandant of the NSCDC, Charles Brown, who paraded the suspects in Calabar, the State capital Wednesday, said they were arrested in the early hours of the day following intelligent report.

Brown, who however noted that the gang leader was still at large, explained said the suspects were arrested at various locations with criminal charms, arms and ammunition as well as other items.

He gave the names of the arrested suspects to include, Gospel Otu 25, Mohammed Abdulahi 18, Paul Edem 19, Miracle Augustin 15 and Rex Okokon 22.

The State Commandant further noted that two of the suspects have confessed to committing the crimes, saying that,they would be handed over to the police upon completion of investigation.

“They had recently robbed a hotel in Calabar South where their faces were captured by the CCTV mounted in the hotel. We also traced them to a phone they stole in the hotel. 

“We have been on them for sometime now and just this morning, we apprehended one of them who took us to roundup four others. AS we speak, their gang leader is still at large but we will get him,” Brown explained.

The Commandant vowed that the NSCDC in collaboration with other sister security agencies in the State would make Cross River uninhabitable for criminals as he appealed to the people of the State to always avail security agencies with relevant information in order to stamp out criminal activities.
