Robbery, kidnap suspects escape from prison

Suspects of armed robbery and kidnap have escaped from Cross River Police Command headquarters custody at Diamond Hill, Calabar.

On Monday, DSP Irene Ugbo, the state Police Command Public Relations Officer, confirmed the incident to newsmen.

Ugbo, however, insisted that only three escaped and not 19 suspects that were widely speculated.

She said, “Only three escaped. Two of them were gunned down while one was rearrested.

“The girlfriend of one of the suspects procured the saw which was used to cut the lock before they escaped.”

Following the incident which happened on Sunday night, a source said, “The station guard and some other officers are being detained.”
