By Obeten Godfrey

A high court sitting in Calabar, the Cross River State capital has set all the suspects in the extra judicial killing of Maurice Ben Derek and five others free.

The suspects who are dismissed officers of the State Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) were all set free by Justice Ogbojor Ogar on Friday.

Delivering the judgment in favor of the defendants, the presiding Judge ruled that the prosecution was unable to prove beyond reasonable doubt that Maurice Ben Derek was dead as opposed to earlier statements by the sacked SARS Officers.

Reacting to the judgment, the Prosecutor, Barrister Odibu told CrossRiverWatch that he is requesting for the certified true copy of the court judgment and will immediately appeal.

The court had earlier slated November 2nd to deliver the said judgment, but later adjourned to November 17th sighting insecurity as an excuse.

Recall that CrossRiverWatch had published a police investigative report where the accused policemen were found guilty of the extra judicial killing of one Maurice Ben Derek and five others who were murdered in cold blood over alleged robbery.
