A clergyman, Evangelist Friday Akpan has said that certain events makes one tempted to ask God, just like Habakkuk did; why he allows men to commit evil and get away with.

Mr. Akpan made this query while giving the eulogy Saturday when the remains of Derek Maurice Ben, an undergraduate of the University of Calabar who was allegedly murdered in Calabar by men of the Special Anti Robbery Squad (SARS) were been laid to rest in his hometown, Ikot Ubo in Nsit Ubium Local Government Area of Akwa Ibom State.

The preacher stated that God’s word can never lie and therefore all evil doers have their day with judgment and will never leave peacefully.

Mr. Akpan charged the family of the deceased to seek consolation in God pointing out that: “He that gives has also taken” and that God will seek vengeance, if he wills for the family.

On his part, Dr. Ben Maurice, an elder brother to the late Derek in his remarks appreciated all those who stood with the family all through the period and prayed for God to bless all of them according to his riches in Glory.

The late Derek Maurice Ben was allegedly killed with five others on April 17, 2014 at about 2:00 AM by operatives of SARS in Cross River.

Derek, 22 a CrossRiverWatch investigation later showed that he was killed in cold blood and his corpse sold to the Anatomy department in the University of Calabar for NGN10,000.

Initial investigations were rebuffed by the SARS operatives who threatened fire and brimstone on the petitioners and the lawyer.

A petition by his family led to the investigation and dismissal of 14 policemen after an orderly room trial including one Sergeant Anthony Idoko whom is suspected to have masterminded the murder of Mr. Derek.

They were then charged to court and after several legal challenges including an alleged bribery of the Attorney General of Cross River State, Barrister Joe Abang to return a legal opinion of “Nolle Prosecui,” the presiding Judge, Ogbojor Ogar acquitted the dismissed officers for lack of evidence to prove that the deceased was actually dead.

Meanwhile, the mother of the victim accused the judge of corruption and vowed not to rest until her family gets justice.
