OBUDU: Four Gangsters Arrested After Shooting Soldier In Both Legs

In Breaking News, National News, Reports

By CrossRiverWatch Admin

Suspected members of a criminal gang in Obudu, northern Cross River state on Saturday night, got involved in exchange of gunfire with some soldiers stationed in Obudu, along Bekpam Layout – Ikwen Ogar axis.

CrossRiverWatch findings reveal that members of a criminal gang identified by security sources as “Vikings” were holding a “gyration” in the neighborhood when someone that soldiers were in pursuit of, ran and took refuge with them.

A source who is familiar with developments told CrossRiverWatch that:”When soldiers arrived the scene to inquire about the suspect, it resulted in a fight with them and an Army officer was shot on both legs.”

The source who spoke to us on anonymity because he is not authorized to speak on the matter, added that some of the gangsters also escaped with gunshot injuries.

CrossRiverWatch was unable to independently confirm that.

There is no news yet about the arrested suspects as both the Army and the Police as well as political appointees in Obudu that have been contacted by CrossRiverWatch are not willing to comment on the matter.

The Commander of the Army unit in Obudu, Lt. Olatunji Daisy, when contacted by this reporter, on hearing the call was from a journalist, quickly said he is busy and dropped the call.

But our findings indicate that the wounded soldier is receiving treatment at the sacred heart hospital in Obudu under close watch by his colleagues who have also vowed a total clamp down on gangsters in Obudu.
