The Cross River State Police Command killed one suspected robber and arrested six others shortly after they attacked a micro-finance bank in Calabar on Tuesday, November 15th.


The state Commissioner of Police, Mr Jimoh Ozi-Obeh, disclosed this to newsmen yesterday, at the command's headquarters in Calabar while parading the suspects.

Ozi-Obeh said the surveillance team attached to the Atakpa Police Division received a distress call from concerned members of the public informing them about an ongoing robbery at a bank located along Mayne Avenue by Inyang Street in Calabar South.

"On November 15, 2016, men of the surveillance team attached to the Atakpa Division received a distress call of a bank robbery in Calabar South. My men immediately swung into action and confronted the gang in a serious gun battle which eventually led to the death of one of them by name Alex. We also arrested six of them and when searched, we recovered one black Toyota Camry without number plate; one locally made pistol, pump-top handset, phones, ATM cards and others 
"Out of the six suspects arrested, one of them is in the hospital receiving treatment after receiving serious gun shots. I must respectfully commend members of the public who availed us the useful information that led to the arrest of these suspects," the Commissioner said.
