SS2 student leader of Calabar robbery gang arrested

Christian Donatus, alias Inyang, a Senior Secondary School 2 student of Eastern Secondary School, Ediba, Calabar, leader of the robbery gang that raided Value Mart, the shop owned by former Cross River State First Lady, Obioma Imoke, two weeks ago, has been arrested.

The 19-year-old Christian from Akokwa, Imo State, was paraded by police alongside one of his accomplices, Ubong Bassey Essien, who is from Ikot Ekpene in Akwa Ibom State, while four other members of the gang are said to be on the run. 

According to Cross River Police Command’s Police Public Relations Officer, Ms Irene Ugbo, Christian and his gang have been terrorising various parts of the city, raiding homes, shops and commuters and dispossessing them of their valuables. 

According to her, the gang shot a medical doctor at Akim Qua three weeks ago and also carted away safes at a shop along Marian Road, containing large sums of money. 

She said Christian and one of his members were arrested on July 16 by operatives of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad, SARS. 

“Efforts have been intensified to track down those on the run and we hope that very soon they will be arrested and brought to book, while these ones in our custody will soon appear in court,” she added.
