CrossRiverWatch can authoritatively confirm that action is now being taken against the killer cops attached to the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS), Calabar who murdered five detainees extra-judicially.
CrossRiverWatch had exclusively reported how Police men identified as Edidiong, Inspector Gershom Isotu, Sgt. Tony Idoko, Cpl. Ewa and others, removed five detainees including one Derek Moses and a taxi driver, from their cell on April 17, 2014 and went on to gruesomely murder them in an unknown location, labelled them armed robbers and gave their bodies to the anatomy department of the University of Calabar.
The AIG Zone 6, Musa Dauda, on finding out, set up an investigative panel which has concluded its work and written a report that indicted the policemen.
The killer cops were initially arrested and later set free after pressure was mounted on the Police by some politicians in the state.
But CrossRiverWatch can confirm that they have now been rearrested on the orders of the AIG Zone 6 and are currently under detention at the zonal headquarters.
Our source said, “I think the media reports triggered interest from different quarters and some steps are being taken. I can confirm that the accused policemen are now back in detention on the orders of the AIG and now that the judicial workers have called off their strike, there is every likelihood that they will be charged to court.”
