The Cross River State Police Command has arrested one Peter Bishung

for allegedly defrauding over 30 people of more than N6million.

It was gathered that Mr. Bishung, who posed as a medical doctor had

been hanging around the Ministry of Health headquarters premises at

the Michael Ani secretariat in Calabar where he may have gotten wind

of information to swindle unsuspecting contractors of cash.

He is said to have allegedly posed as a middle man for contracts

especially for the 1.5 million dollars world bank health grant to

revitalize the Primary Health care system in the state.

Mr. Bishung is suspected to have defrauded about 32 people of over N6

million promising them that they will get contracts.

He is said to have collected a minimum of NGN200,000 from each company

profile collected.

He was often found around the reception of the office of the Director

of Medical Services in the ministry, Dr. Kenneth Takim, who had asked

him to produce relevant papers to prove he was a medical practitioner

which he failed to do.

He claimed to be "working with department of medical services in the

second floor of the Cross River State Ministry of Health, Calabar," a

source in the ministry told CrossRiverWatch.

He was lodging at federal heads of parastatals guest house located at

road 6, federal housing estate from where he carried out his alleged

dubious acts.

"He is on the run because he could not offset the bills he incurred

there amounting to almost NGN200,000," the source added.

The Police is said to have recovered the profiles of 32 companies in

the same room.

And, Police sources say the matter has been moved from the Zone Six

Police Command in Calabar and is now domiciled at the Federal Housing
