Security operatives in the University of Calabar have arrested two suspected criminals over phone theft and other criminal activities.
A picture taken by the security operatives of the institution during the parade showed one of the suspected criminals smiling to the camera.
The arrest of the suspected criminals was confirmed by the Director of Information of the Student Union Government, Comrade Onigah Joseph via a statement which was released on Tuesday, March 23.
According to the statement, the suspects specialised in phone theft and other criminal activities on campus.
The suspects identified as Victor Edet Okon and Udeme Joseph Effiong were paraded around the chemistry department on Monday, March 22, by the security personnel.
Edet is a resident of no. 28, Mayne Avenue, Calabar but hails from Ibiono Local Government Area of Akwa Ibom state, while Udeme claimed to reside at no. 21 Atimbo, Calabar but a native of Nsit Itam, Akwa Ibom state.
“Edet and Udeme confessed to be the architects of most crimes on campus whereas they’ve been bound from entering the University. Edet, however said he has almost repented from stealing as he’s always caught whenever he steals,” the statement reads.
“The suspects who are neither students of the university nor business operators have been handed over to appropriate authority for further interrogation.”
