On receipt of intelligence by officers of the newly launched Cross River Operation Akpakwu , an alleged notorious kidnapper, Bassey Etim was said to have been spotted with his gang around the Anantigha axis of Calabar South.
Operation Akpakwu responded immediately and surrounded all escape perimeter, then clamped on the criminal suspect with his gang.
Also confirmed is the presence of
Operation Crocodile Smile which is now permanently stationed in Anantigha, Calabar South Local Government Area.
As of yesterday, the security agens invaded and combed the entire Anantigha and Jebbs creeks in search of kidnappers and notorious gang leaders.
Meanwhile the State Security Department has dismissed report making the rounds on social media that one person was shot dead at Ekpo Abasi junction, Calabar South in the wee hours of yesterday, stating emphatically that report is false.
Narrating the event, the department said they received a distressed call from a shop owner of possible shooting around the environment which necessitated the expedient response of OP Akpakwu but upon arrival it was discovered that the blaring sound from “knock-out” being thrown into a popular shop was mistaken for gunshots.
