UNICAL : 400-level medical student arrested for cultism, illegal possession of firearms

The suspect, Ikezue Kingsley Nnadi

Men of the Security Unit of the University of Calabar have arrested one Ikezue Kingsley Nnadi, a 400-level student of the Faculty of Medicine for alleged cultism and illegal possession of firearms.

The Chief Security Officer of the institution (CSO), Jarlath Abang who paraded the suspect said he was arrested at Students’ hostel, Moore Road by gallant men of the security unit who were on routine surveillance of hostels.

Abang said men of the security unit had already received intelligence reports about his nefarious activities in the hostel, a cogent reason; it swung into action and arrested him at the wee-hours of the morning.

The CSO said Ikezue who is suspected to be a cult leader had forcefully occupied the Hall Chairman’s room at the hostel and refused to vacate despite several appeals from the security unit.

Abang who described the arrest as another major breakthrough in his resolve to stamp out cultism from the institution said it is in tandem with the Vice Chancellor, Prof. Zana Akpagu's zero tolerance policy on cultism.
Items recovered from the suspect

The CSO said, ‘’the suspect was arrested at about 2.am by men of the security unit who were on a normal routine checks of hostels. But prior to his arrest there were sporadic gunshots in the hostel and this is what prompted us to swing into action.’’

Abang said items recovered from the suspect include: a locally made pistol, cartridges, charms, hard drugs, Indian Hemps, Aye Confraternity flag and various identity cards, among others.

He said the suspect will be handed over to the police for further action.
