Represented by the Police Public Relations Officer, PPRO, Irene Ugbo, he said the suspects were apprehended by the police following a distress call from a good Samaritan.

The police anti-cultism and kidnapping squad swung into action and surrounded the suspects up.

Denying allegation that he was a kidnapper, Eyo Bassey, who claimed to be an operative of the DSS, said: ” I am not a kidnapper but was called in by my friend to assist him to retrieve some money which he gave to Mr. Robert Bassey to facilitate an admission at the University of Calabar (UNICAL).

Also denying, Mr Eyo Edet, 36, said: “The police apprehended us while trying to retrieve the N218, 000 which two of the suspects gave to Mr. Robert Bassey to help secure admission for his two friends into the University of Calabar.

“Am a staff of Calabar Municipal Council, in Cross River State. I don’t know anything concerning kidnapping as alleged by our accusers.”
