Findings have revealed that, angry mob on Monday February 27, 2017 lynched an alleged car battery thieve to death in Calabar, the Cross River State capital.
This action, according to eye witnesses report, was carried out at the Calabar south axis Cross River State capital city. Sources say, the cadaver of the unfortunate alleged criminal is decomposing at Yellow Duke Street almost bordering Musaha Street.
An angry resident in Calabar, Efio-Ita Nyok who took to his facebook page, lambasted the Government of Cross River State, saying, that the corpse of the unfortunate alleged criminal is decomposing concurrently with the celebration of His Excellency’s birthday, suggest the degree of irresponsibility on the part of the Ministry of Environment and its not-done-well Commissioner, Mike Eraye.
He further stated that, granted that Calabar Urban Development Authority (CUDA) isn’t functional since the landlord shut down the place over the failure of the state government to renew rent, it does not sufficiently negate the fact that the not-done- well Eraye’s Environment ministry is supposed to swing into action and dispose the decomposing cadaver from the state capital city.
Residents said, while we struggle with managing Lassa Fever, let us not inflict an emergency of a sprawling dimension on the state. Environment ministry should dispose the decomposing body off the street for health reasons.
We gathered that, incidentally, the Governor of Cross River, Mr. Ben Ayade, is celebrating his 49th birthday today, where there is so much bustle around Government House and Governor’s Office in respect of Ayade’s birthday.
Whereas, the state Governor is the chief security officer of the state and whereas security of lives and property is the primary responsibility of the government of any state, national or subnational, and whereas the rate of jungle justice is increasing at an alarming degree, it suffices to say that the state of security in the state is in an all time low! We have never had it this way before.
Is Eraye telling us indirectly that His Excellency is deliberately celebrating over a decomposing cadaver? Efiok queried.
