Kinghope Ubi, who is not a student of UNICAL, said that his friend gave him the dummy gun to point at students and collect their phones.

After arresting him, they found a passport of him wearing a Nigeria Customs Service uniform. He told newsmen that he was dismissed from the Customs Service in 2021.

Speaking on the arrest, the Acting CSO of UNICAL, SP Usani Okon (Rtd), said that the current administration of Prof. Florence Banku Obi frowns at any act of stealing and robbery on campus.

He said that the VC has repositioned the security operatives in the institution with a view to protecting all students and staff against any form of robbery and attack.

Thereafter, the suspect was handed over to the Anti-Kidnapping and Cultism Squad of the Police for further actions.
