The Cross River State Police Com­mand on Monday said one of its personnel, Cpl Kingsley Iyeke, killed another policeman, Insp Edet Archibong, during a gun duel between the po­lice and suspected cultists in Calabar.
The Commissioner of Police in the state, Mr Jimoh Ozi-Obeh, who briefed newsmen on the activities of the command in the past one month, said that the command traced the cultists to their hideout where some of them were arrested.
He explained that dur­ing interrogation, one of the suspected cultists mentioned Iyeke as their member “and that he was the one that shot the po­lice inspector during the clash.”
The CP added, “It would be recalled that we lost one of our inspec­tors last month during an exchange of gunfire with some cultists here in Cala­bar.
“Majority of the sus­pects have been arrested. Our front line interroga­tion shows that one of our personnel, Cpl Kingsley Iyeke, was one of the cult­ists.
“After interrogating one of the arrested cultists, he confessed that Iyeke was their member and that he was the one that shot the inspector.
“During our trial, we found out that truly he was their member. We have dismissed him and he will face the full wrath of the law.”
Iyeke, 35, from Riv­ers State, was attached to the Marine Police base in Calabar.
Responding to ques­tions from newsmen, Iyeke denied being a member of any cult group, saying that he was only being set up by the sus­pected cultists.
The commissioner said that the command also rescued a 16-year-old kid­nap victim, who was ab­ducted in Ibadan on No­vember 7 and brought to Calabar the following day.
