The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) in Cross River State has arrested six suspected cultists with two locally-made pistols.

Commandant of NSCDC in the state, Mr Samuel Fadeyi, who disclosed this in an interview with NAN, said the suspects were arrested in a hotel in Calabar after the Corps noticed their suspicious moves.

Fadeyi, who resumed as the new Commandant of the Corps in the state on June 15, said that no suspected criminal would be spared if arrested.

He told NAN that the suspects were still undergoing profiling, adding that under his watch, every arrested suspect would be prosecuted accordingly.

“Within my first week of arrival, some group of boys lodged in a hotel where I kept my escorts and on the basis of suspicion, we had to raid them. After the arrest, we found two locally-made pistols with them. We are currently profiling the suspects as we speak,” he said.

He said that the command under his watch would not tolerate cases of vandalism, oil theft, transformer theft, adulteration of petroleum products which most times leads to explosion and health risks.

He told NAN he was currently doing a risk-threat assessment of critical infrastructure in the state, starting with Calabar as the capital city of the state.

He warned anyone or group of persons planning or harbouring criminal intentions in the state to desist from it, adding that a new “sheriff is in town”.

He pledged to collaborate with other security agencies in the state in order to promote and enhance peace and progress.
