The Police Command in Cross River has confirmed the killing of two out of the three suspected kidnappers involved in the abduction of four clerics sometime in August.

The Commissioner of Police in the state, Aminu Alhassan, gave the confirmation in Calabar on Sunday.

He said that the two suspects were naturalised by SP Awodi Abdulhameed led Anti Cultism and Kidnapping Squad that carried out a covert operation based on credible intelligence.

According to him, “It is true that we neutralised two kidnap kingpins involved in the kidnap of some pastors who went to Church planting at Creek Town, Odukpani Local Government Area of the state.

”The two couldn’t make it alive, while the third, who is now at large, was severely injured during a gun duel.”

The Commissioner appealed to the locals to be on the lookout for anyone with gun wounds in their community. (NAN)
