The Commissioner of Police in Cross River State, Aminu Alhassan, has confirmed the death of two suspected kidnappers.
He made the confirmation in Calabar on Sunday when he briefed newsmen.
Four clergymen of the Apostolic Church and three others were kidnapped a few weeks ago on their way to their church in Creek Town, Odukpani LGA of the state.
They were reportedly released after payment of N10 million ransom.
The CP said that the two suspects were killed by SP Awodi Abdulhameed led anti-cultism and kidnapping squad.
He urged residents to be on the lookout for anyone with gun wounds in their community.
“Remember we had earlier warned that we will no longer wait for them (criminals) to commit crimes, but that we shall keep smoking them out from their various camps, hideouts.
“Especially as we have entered ember months, we want to urge law abiding citizens to be more vigilant and shouldn’t take security for granted because it’s everybody’s business.”
