    Lady Who Reportedly Keeps Guns For Her Boyfriend Arrested In Cross River... Photos



    The Cross River Police Command said it has arrested a female armourer, Ms. Hope Usang, 25, who leases arms to suspected robbers in Calabar, the state capital. The state Commissioner of Police, Hafiz Inuwa, who briefed newsmen yesterday on the successes recorded by the command, said that Usang and 21 other suspects were arrested at different locations across the state...



    Inuwa said that Usang was arrested last month following a case of robbery involving one Paschal Bisong of Ekpeyong Effiok street in Calabar Municipality.

    According to him, after Paschal made complaint to the police about the robbery attack, his men swung into action and arrested one Emmanuel Edet-Etim and Idoreyin Usa.

    He further explained that after a thorough investigation by the police, the suspects confessed that they got the arms from Usang. His words: “In our efforts to build a safe Cross River, we must not tolerate any form of arms proliferation. On February 24, following a report by one Paschal Bisong of a robbery attack, my men swung into action, leading to the arrest of two suspects, Emmanuel Edet-Etim and Idoreyin Usa. 

    “The suspects confessed that one Hope Usang supplied them with arms for the robbery. When my men stormed Usang’s house, they recovered three revolvers, four rounds of ammunition, one pistol, one locally-made pistol among others.” He told newsmen that the suspects would soon be charged to court accordingly. 

    In the same vein, the Commissioner said that 21 other suspects were arrested at different locations across the state for various offences. He listed some of the offences to include robbery, rape, kidnapping, murder, cultism, illegal possession of fire arms among others. 

    Meanwhile, Usang told Vanguard that the guns found in her house belong to her boyfriend, a student, but did not divulge his name. Her words: “The guns belong to my boyfriend, a student. I never knew that he was keeping some guns in my house.”
