The dreaded gang leader in Cross River State, Kingsley Utomobong, who was arrested last week along with some members of his gang has been killed in Police custody, CrossRiverWatch has reliably confirmed from multiple security sources.
Details of his death are still sketchy but CrossRiverWatch is following the story.
But multiple security sources have told CrossRiverWatch that Utomobong had “become too much of a problem.”
Kingsley was arrested for the murder of an Assistant Commissioner of Police, Egbe Edum, who is also a nephew of the State Deputy Governor.
Edum was hacked to death Wednesday, December 2, along the Murtala Mohammed Highway in Calabar.
