Men of the Nigeria Army recently paraded four suspected criminals in Ikang, Bakassi local government area. The four are alleged to be notorious hoodlums that have been terrorizing the area.
According to a reliable source, the culprits, whose identities are said to be questionable, are believed to have been involved in criminal acts but have always gone unpunished. Our source wondered what could be the reason behind the recent arrest of the four by the Army.
Our source further alleged that “two amongst the four suspects have served jail terms and on their return became more deadly in the community.”
It was also gathered that on Monday, August 15, 2016 two of them robbed a house along Ikot Ebok street at gun point.
After parading them, the soldiers took them to the barracks by the Jetty and locked them up. One of the officers who pleaded anonymity said they will be taken to the 13th Brigade Calabar for proper follow up and handing over to the police.
Recently, Bakassi has seen a sharp increase in security challenges ranging from robbery, kidnapping, rape, and other nefarious activities of gangsters.
