The command Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Irene Ugbo, said in a statement in Calabar on Sunday that the suspects were nine men and two women.

He said that the suspects were arrested on August 14 through “human and tactical intelligence information” deployed by the state Commissioner of Police, Mr. Abdulkadir Jimoh.

Ugbo said that the suspects were arrested by operatives from the Special Anti Robbery Squad and officers from the Federal Housing Police Division.

“On Aug. 14, 2020, a team of SARS operatives and men from the Federal Housing Police Division through intelligence from the Commissioner of Police swung into action and arrested 11 suspected cultists during initiation.

Items recovered from them include talking drum, wooden guns, two kegs of concoction and a bottle of Gordon drink.

The police command said its “Operation Murky Waters” was still ongoing and was determined to neutralize all illegal activities and those behind them.

Ugbo, however, enjoined peace-loving residents of Cross River to go about their normal businesses without fear of any kind.
