Men of the Anti Cultism and Kidnapping Squad of the Cross River State Command of the Nigerian Police Force on Tuesday, allegedly murdered in cold blood, a staff of the University of Calabar Teaching Hospital (UCTH), Mr. Nakanda Edet.

Mr. Edet is alleged to have ran upon sighting the squad at the UCTH premises where he was attending a reception organised by management for staff after their activities to mark the International Workers Day at the Udoakaha Jacob Esuene stadium.

Vanguard Newspapers reports that he ran towards the backyard of the administrative block of UCTH, but unfortunately, he never made it out of the place alive.

And, the Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Mrs. Irene Ugbo, who confirmed the incident, absolved the squad of the murder of the man.

Ugbo, an Assistant Superintendent of Police said that Mr. Nakanda had been on the wanted list of police over a murder case which he was involved in.

The management of UCTH declined comment, pending an autopsy on the deceased.

But, several comments on social media have given new twists to the story despite a staff telling Vanguard that Mr. Nakanda had carried out gang related activities with the Police after him for a while now.

On Facebook, Ifere Paul wrote: “According to the information available, he was strangled to death. His remains has been deposited in the mortuary.”

However, Eno Ikwen cautioned as criminal elements have devised new strategies.

He wrote: “You can’t be sure if it is police or kidnappers or hire killers. I am a witness to a kidnapping victim’s testimony.

“He was arrested by Kidnappers who wore police bulletproof vest with Ak-47. He obeyed them thinking they were police, driving him towards airport police station, only for him to realise he was being driven to airport bypass and on foot he was taken to a waiting boat in a river behind FGGC and then into the waters of Bakassi.

“This case might not be different.
Criminals with police identity causing havoc.”
