Cross River monarch arrested for alleged cult activities

A team of the State Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) of the Police have reportedly arrested the Paramount Ruler of Yakurr local government area and the Obol Lopon of Ugep, Obol Ofem Ubana.

Daily Post reports that the SARS team stormed the palace of the Obol Lopon on Tuesday at about 12 noon and arrested Ubana. This led to a temporary face-off between the youth and the Policemen who had attempted to stop the arrest.

This led to a temporary face-off between the youth and the Policemen who attempted to stop the arrest.

He was then taken to Abuja, but a source from the Police Headquarters, Diamond Hill, Calabar denied that the Monarch was taken to Abuja but was taken to the Police Headquarters Diamond Calabar.

“He is being kept at the Police Headquarters, Diamond Hill Calabar, Cross River State,” the source said.

One of the youths who pleaded anonymity said that Police came to invite Obol Lopon to Abuja for investigation over the death of Barrister Okoi Obono-Obla’s nephew who died as a Viking cult member.

“Ojor of Ijom ward that shot Obono-Obla’s nephew was arrested yesterday in a bank in Akwa Ibom. So what does he still want from our Obol Lopon? We must not allow them to arrest our Obol Lopon.

“They should have stopped their brother from being a cult member when he was alive. All we need now is peace in our dear Ugep land, our new yam festival is at hand,” he said.
