The Police Division in Obudu local government area of northern Cross River has arrested a wanted suspect simply identified as ‘Omagu’ who was linked to the kidnap of the daughter of one Mr. Julius Adalikwu seven months ago.

Mr. Omagu was arrested on Holy Thursday in the company of two other members of his gang including one identified as ‘Oko’ and the other being the son of the chapter chairman of the People’s Democratic Party in the local government area, Mr. Denis Nchor.

Omagu who goes by the operational moniker; Don Magabush is said to have evaded arrest seven months back after an exchange of gunfire with the Police when four members of his gang were arrested.

But, following a tip off, he was intercepted with huge amounts of cash in his car and Police sources say he has even made a confessional statement concerning robberies in Obudu, Obanliku and Bekwarra local government areas.

But, an insider says there is fear Mr. Omagu may be released as there seems to be some political interest in the matter.

“Normally, the DPO (Divisional Police Officer) sends these kind of people almost immediately to Calabar. But, he has been here for almost a week and we are hearing that he may even be released,” an insider told CrossRiverWatch on condition of anonymity.

This could not be independently verified as the DPO, Supol Eyo Lifu did not take calls. However, CrossRiverWatch has reached the Police spokesperson in the state, Mrs. Irene Ugbo, an Assistant Superintendent of Police for details.
