By CrossRiverWatch Admin

Weeks after declaring 35 gangsters wanted, the Cross River State Government has not relaxed effort as one has been taken into custody.

Effiong Okon Bassey AKA Bulldog in Omar street, Calabar South has been confirmed to be in Police custody. The suspect was recently granted amnesty and released from prison.

The State Security Adviser to Governor Ben Ayade, Chief Ani Esin told Daily Post that Eteka was reported to have been whisked off from his hideouts over the weekend.

He’s suspected to be among the murderers of the former Odukpani LGA PDP Chairman.

According to Esin, the matter is still under investigation. He revealed that some personal effects of some of those still at large have been burnt to act as a deterrent to others who would want to acquire illegal wealth through crimes and crime-related offences.

“Some property of the suspects identified to have absconded were burnt. We are going to get all of them in our lists. However, some of the suspected criminals have reported themselves to us and confessed to the crime while others who were wrongly captured were profiled and released.

“We are doing a detailed job to avoid innocent people being arrested. We however invite those who have information about the wanted criminals to come forth with such information and would treat them with all amount of confidentiality,” he stated.

Esin, however, thanked the security operatives for supporting the State Government in fighting to eradicate crimes and criminal-related cases in the State.
