Following mixed reactions from the public on the release of DSP Eyong Obeten, head of the State Anti-kidnapping and Anti-Cultism Unit and some of his cohorts from detention over allegations of extra judicial killing of six suspected kidnappers in Ikom local government area, the Police authorities have said that they were released because they don’t have the right to detain anyone for more than 24 hours but that investigation is still on going.
This was made known by the State Public Relations Officer, ASP Irene Ugbo while speaking to CrossRiverWatch TV.
She also acknowledged that there are images purporting that seven of the suspects were arrested and paraded and later six killed and the only female nowhere to be found.
