A senior secondary school student has been arrested for leading a robbery gang that has been wrecking havoc in Calabar.
CrossRiverWatch reports that Donatus alias Inyang, a student of Eastern Secondary School, Ediba, Calabar, had led his gang to rob a shop, Value Mart, owned by the former First Lady of the state, Obioma Imoke, about two weeks ago.
Parading the suspect alongside one of his gang members, Ubong Bassey Essien, at the Command’s headquarters on Wednesday, July 27, the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Irene Ugbo, said Donatus, an indigene of Akokwa, Imo State, had been terrorizing various parts of the city, raiding homes, shops and commuters and dispossessing them of their valuables.
“The same gang shot a medical doctor at Akim Qua Town three weeks ago and also carted away safes at a shop along Marian Road, containing large sums of money.
The suspect and one of his members were arrested on July 16 by operatives of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS)."
"Efforts have been intensified to track down four other members of the gang who are on the run and we hope that very soon they will be arrested and brought to book. These ones in our custody will soon appear in court.”
