More photographs have emerged showing a group of Kidnappers shot dead in Ikom by the cross-river state special anti-robbery squad(SARS), alive during the time of capture contradicting a report by the Cross-river police that the kidnappers were killed in a gun battle.
One of the photographs indicate that the kidnappers were not killed in a gun battle but were likely murdered as a young man is seen dragging the body of one of the kidnappers out of a bush. Other photographs show the kidnappers alive and well after their arrest.
The development is now being tagged an extrajudicial killing of the suspected kidnappers. The CRS Police Public Relations Officer, ASP Irene Ugbo insists that the suspects were killed in a gun battle with the police, but these pictures clearly show that they were arrested and killed without resisting.
