Policeman leading kidnap gang arrested in Calabar

A serving policeman and five others have reportedly been arrested in connection with the recent spate of kidnappings in Calabar, the Cross River State capital.

It was gathered that the policeman, whose identity was not disclosed, was picked up by ‘Operation Skolombo’ anti-crime squad in the metropolis after at least five kidnap suspects who were arrested on Sunday allegedly implicated him.

Sources said the suspects’ disclosure led to the arrest of the policeman.

The suspects and the policeman, who is said to own some properties, are being held at Eburutu Barracks in Calabar.
