An ex-policeman found to belong to a dreaded cult group in Calabar, the capital of Cross River State, has been dismissed. The shamed ex-cop, Kingsley Iyeke,35, originally hails from Rivers State and allegedly partook in a gun fight between his gang and policemen, which left an officer dead.
The State Commissioner of Police, Jimoh Ozi-Ibeh, said Iyeke was exposed after the police stormed the cultists’ hideout.
“Majority of the suspects have been arrested. Our interrogation shows that one of our personnel, Corporal Kingsley Iyeke, was a cultist.
“One of the arrested cultists confessed Iyeke shot the police inspector dead”, he said.
