Edward Ushie, the so called Leader of the Klux Klu Klan in Obudu Local Government in Northern Cross River State which in the past three weeks have been engaged in a supremacy conflict with the Vikings Confraternity was during the week arrested by police.

Edward who was arrested along with his second in command, Otogo Gabriel was taken from Obudu to the Cross River State Police Command headquarters at Diamond Hill where they are being interrogated by detectives.

A police source told CrossRiverWatch that the duo have mentioned other cult members who are being trailed by the police and would also be arrested soon.

“Some of them are known politicians and we have left a message with the Obudu Council Chairman, Dr. Emmanuel Ikwen and the Paramount Ruler of the area, Uti J.D. Agba to tell those we are looking for to report at the Obudu Police station or the police headquarters on Monday because if they fail to do so they would be declared wanted”, a senior police detective told CrossRiverWatch.

The cult war which is alleged to be politically motivated has so far claimed about six lives in the last three weeks and the police have been on the trail of the warring cultists which led to the arrest of the two gang leaders.

Reacting to the killings and subsequent arrests of the cultists whom earlier publications had said were students of the Federal College of Education, Obudu, Dr. Eugene Ibili, the Provost of the College, said the school is “cultism unfriendly and has battled the scourge to extinction from all its campuses and so those involved in the recent cult activity are not our students”.

The Provost said the school for a long time has not witnessed the activities of cultism and that normal academic activities were going on at the time of the cult war. “Normal academic and other activities were going on uninterrupted during the period because there was no cult activity on any of our campuses”.

The Police Commissioner for Cross River State Mr. Sodipo said the cultists have no right to disturb the peace of the people and “would all soon be arrested and brought to book”.
