WILD WILD SOUTH: Citizens Reports of a resurrected orgy of shootings, killings, etc in Calabar South!


Efio-Ita Nyok|19 March 2017 Sequel to the Thursday 16 March cold-blooded assassination of Dr. Emmanuel Igbeng of the Department of Accounting, Faculty of Management, University of Calabar (UNICAL), Calabar at his Uwanse street, Calabar residence there has been a seeming follow-up of violence, maiming, shooting, and killing, etc in the state capital NegroidHaven can authoritatively inform. Beginning from Thursday through today Sunday, there's been no night or even day that residents and indigenes of Calabar do not sleep under fear of the unknown. It's either Cross Riverians or otherwise are running helter skelter from the one place to the other place, or it's the blaring sound of sirens of ineffective patrolling police vehicles, or sounds of gun shots or a bad tale of death the next day. Streets like Orok Orok, White House by Maple, Ekondo, Victor Akan, Bedwell, Atekong Drive by Marian Road, Watt Market, Uwanse, etc have turned into a theater of war for hoodlums. Unconfirmed reports has it that no fewer than four persons have gone down already especially at Orok Orok, White House by Maple, Bedwell etc. At Calabar South night commences by 6PM instead of 9PM. It's said that the spate of shootings and killings is not unconnected to a sharp rivalry ongoing between three cult gangs. Their identity remains shrouded in a mystery as at when our correspondents was going to the press. However, there's every reason to think that these killing spree has politics as its unsavoury undertone. What follows is the reaction of not less than 20 persons who articulated their experiences: Ekeng Inyang

Verified  information at my desk has it that there was serious shootings and restlessness in Watt Market today by activities of men of the underworld. These shootings were done before the police station close to the post office Also currently, there are gun shots around Uwanse. Police have been said to have been currently dispatched to the area. It looks like full blown war in calabar today  As I write now, some people have been confirmed dead at Orok Orok and there are sounds of siren blaring around the main avenue axis The governor must stop sleeping and move on to salvage the situation. This is not MoU time or time for pageantry and buying of Vanguard Awards. Besides communual crisis, Cross River State is increasingly becoming unsafe Precious Effanga

They are cultist. 3 cult groups are fighting randomly. ***************************************** I am calling on the chief security officer of the state, Senator and Professor Ben Ayade, SSA Jude Ngaji, Commissioner of Police, State Commandant of Nigerian Security and Civil Defense to rise to their games and justify taxpayers money they live on. Where is the Homeland Security of Ayade? Wither political administration in this state? Wither the N600, 000, 000 unaccounted security vote coming into the state coffers on a monthly basis?
