The late criminal, Stephen Etim Edet, gunned down by SARS, Wednesday

Men of the State Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) of the Cross River State Police Command Wednesday morning gunned down a wanted man, Stephen Etim Edet at Moore road in Calabar, the state capital after a hot chase.

Stephen, a member of a robbery gang that has been terrorizing the city for years, began the journey to his end three days ago when the state’s anti-crime outfit, ‘Operation Skolombo’ chased him and his gang at state housing area following a foiled robbery attack.

The gang escaped but Stephen was said to have been trailed and was chased by the SARS patrol team from Bayside, Marina where he crossed the Atakpa gully control site into the Police Barracks at Moore road and hid in someone’s apartment, threatening the owners.

“When the SARS team appeared on the scene, they combed and brought him out,” an eyewitness (names withheld) told CrossRiverWatch.

“When they brought him out, people gathered and the leader of the SARS team shouted ‘waste that idiot, kill him’ when asked by his boys what they should do.

One of them took his rifle and shot him through the buttocks with the bullet penetrating to his Penis region which was obviously shattered.

“He kept struggling for about 30 minutes before he died and another Police team came and took the body away,” the eyewitness said.

CrossRiverWatch also gathered that Stephen’s mother, who had treated him after he was shot a few weeks back arrived the scene after his son was shot dead and was arrested by the Police.
