The Cross River State Command of the Nigerian Police Force is seeking for more vehicles to patrol the state as the capital city of Calabar has been hit by a wave of kidnappings.

The command’s spokesperson, Irene Ugbo, a Deputy Superintendent of Police, told Vanguard Newspapers that the command is trying its best but needs the assistance of the public.

She disclosed that the Anti Cultism and Kidnapping Squad (ACKS) of the Command has arrested one out of a 30-man kidnapping gang that was involved in the abduction and subsequent release of Sunday Adeniran, a clergyman with the Redeemed Christian Church of God.

The suspect is Felix Etim, 26.

“He belongs to a 30-man gang that has been terrorizing residents of 8 miles ,and we arrested him in the early hours of today (yesterday) while we are on the trail of others involved in the kidnap of Pastor Sunday Adeniran and the teacher.

“We have a big challenge, which is lack of vehicles. In spite of that, we are still making progress with the little we are given, I won’t fail to appeal to the public to assist by always giving us useful information always.

“We commend the efforts of SP Abdul Awodi, Commander of the Anti Kidnapping and Cultism Squad for their apt response which is yielding result every day,” she said.

Felix, also known as ‘Mboto’ was arrested at about 4:30AM on Tuesday after a gun duel with men of the ACKS. His colleagues fled, leaving him behind, after he sustained an ankle injury from a gun shot.

He is said to have confessed to kidnapping Adeniran and a female teacher last Saturday. “He also revealed that they abducted one Ogwa Samuel Godwin on September 29, 2021 at Integro, 8 miles,” a source was quoted as saying.
