SECURITY BRIEF ON ETIM EKPO AND UKANAFUN LOCAL GOVERNMENT AREAS AND AKWA IBOM STATE IN GENERAL BY THE COMMISSIONER OF POLICE AKWA IBOM STATE CP ADEYEMI SAMUEL OGUNJEMILUSI mni ON 19 APRIL 2018

In the past two years, Etim Ekpo and Ukanafun Local Government Areas of the State have witnessed upsurge in criminality and brigandage due to the activities of the notorious criminal group led by Akaninyene Jumbo a.k.a ISO AKPAFID. Joint operations of the security agencies in the State led to the death of ISO AKPAFID on 15 January 2018. The peoples’ jubilation that followed was however cut short by the emergence of a wicked and brutal self-crowned successors to Isokpafid, who adopted the title STAINLESS. Successive Stainless led other hoodlums on a revenge mission and unleashed terror on Etim Ekpo and Ukanafun Local Government areas by killing, maiming, raping, kidnapping, issuing of threat letters and burning of houses indiscriminately.

Disturbed by this ugly development, the Security agencies in the State re-strategized and mounted massive operations against the criminal gang. This led to the arrests of many of the hoodlums who in spite of numerous appeals refused to surrender their weapons and embrace peace. Our efforts received a boost at about 2230 hours of yesterday 18 April 2018 with the death of the current and most brutal gang leader, known as Stainless by his victims but whose real name is Isaac, but known to the Security Community and close aides as BAGGY SHORT, after serious exchange of gunfire. Thus effectively bringing to an end the reign of terror of Iso Akpafid and his lieutenants in Etim Ekpo and Ukanafun. We have chosen to parade his corpse to demystify his invisibility and re-assure the people of Etim Ekpo and Ukanafun of their safety to encourage those who have fled the area to return home.

In the course of this operation, the IGP was magnanimous in offering a window of opportunity for people with illegal weapons to turn them in. This yielded favourable result as many arms were mopped up across the State.

Meanwhile, security has improved significantly in Ikot Ekpene, Plaza, Eket and many areas across the State. There is no hiding place for cultists anymore as many of them have been effectively put behind bars while others are facing prosecution. They are mainly responsible for heinous crimes in the State. We are aware some of them have moved their activities into the forests but even there, we would smoke them out. Arrangements have also been concluded with authorities of higher institutions and Students’ Unions to flush them out and restore the glory of the various institutions.

I would therefore like to seize this opportunity to call on all peace-loving people to continue to cooperate with the Police and other security agencies to maintain law and order by furnishing us with credible information. I did pledge on my assumption of duty that we would confront all acts of criminality and make the State the safest in the country and I’m here to assure all Akwaibomites that we’re on course.

We thank the Inspector General of Police and other security Chiefs for approving our joint operations and the State Government for supporting our efforts. We thank the gallant officers of the Police, SSS and the Military. Our appreciation goes to the good people of Akwa Ibom State who came up with useful information. Above all, we thank the Almighty God for the success of the operations and the safety of our officers and men.

Signed

Commissioner of Police

Horror in Ukana as Woman’s arms cut off at Akpabio’s house during illegal registration

Published

on

Woman’s arms cut off at Akpabio’s house during illegal registration… abandoned to her fate She was one of the women called to Senator Godswill Akapbio’s house in Ukana for what many present called an illegal registration exercise. She was promised a little over three thousand and like others who may not have known what they were being invited to do, she went innocently, the attraction being the measly three thousand naira she was promised. “We were shocked when we saw people engaging in what I believe was an illegal registration exercise. There were machines all over the place, and Godswill Akpabio who had just returned from a trip outside the State was seen dishing out instructions. Some of us left the house shortly after we discovered they were asking us to register for the APC. We told them we already are card-carrying members of the PDP and that we couldn’t not sell our conscience. As that innocent lady made to leave, the gate at Senator Akpabio’s house slammed against her and her arm was cut off immediately. She started crying and writhing in pains, but to our shock, the security officers pushed her out of the house while blood was dripping all over her. I have never seen such inhumanity to a fellow person. Goodwill Akpabio was notified but he refused to come to the woman’s assistance. We had to pull our little resources to take the woman to the hospital. This is so sad. And it leaves me wondering: is this the kind of change Akpabio’s APC is bringing to Akwa Ibom: wickedness, horror and terror? May God not allow the counsel of the wicked to prevail. Akwa Ibom people must tell Godswill akpabio: no more blood-letting, enough!
