Renewed hostilities between gangs in Calabar, the Cross River State capital has claimed two lives including that of an aspiring councillor in Ward 8 of Calabar South local government CrossRiverWatch authoritatively reports.

The aspirant name was simply given as Mr. Mesembe and was a strong contender for the position CrossRiverWatch gathered.

He was killed Monday night at Eyo Ita street close to Edibe Edible after being found standing on the street by suspected Vikings and Skylow members whom sources say had mobilized for a hit and when they could not find the person, spotted Mesembe and after a shout from one of them that he was the one, was shot and cut with machetes several times.

His death came 24 hours after a fight between the Skylow gang and Scorpion gang Sunday night had led to the death of a Scorpion member in Ekpo Abasi.

Sources say the Skylow planned a reprisal for the Scorpion gang who had killed about four of their members during the last war.

And, on Sunday night, planned to hit Scorpion members around Mayne Avenue, Ekpo Abasi and Anantigha axis where three teams were waiting and ambushed any fleeing Scorpion member.

The recent war is suspected to be connected to the killing of one Ecomoc in June due to ticketing competition between gang groups after government officials indirectly recruited them through phoney companies serving as revenue collection agencies.

The war may not be unconnected to the last one in March 2017 where at least 6 were killed CrossRiverWatch gathered.
