“One locally-made pistol with two live cartridges was recovered from the suspects and they both confessed to being members of a deadly cult group.”

Similarly, Ikenga said the Inland Police Division on March 22, received a complaint that a Lexus 330 SUV got missing at a car wash on Heritage Road.

He said all efforts made to locate the vehicle and operator of the car wash proved abortive.

However, he said police operatives attached to the Division later arrested two suspects, one Pius Aidam and one Effiong Udeme in connection with the car theft.

“Preliminary investigation revealed that the car was stolen and taken to Uyo, Akwa Ibom State,” the spokesman added.
