Videos obtained by CrossRiverWatch shows that the unknown contractor who had issued a one hour quit notice to shop owners along Calabar lane in Obudu local government area eventually made good his promise by demolishing them.

CrossRiverWatch had reported on Monday that the contractor suspected to be with Sydney construction limited which is constructing the almost 140 kilometers Mfom-Obudu ranch road had begun demolishing some shops last week.

The video shows some shop owners still struggling to take out leftover wares.

This occurred in Wednesday and as at press time, the Cross River State commissioner for works, Dane Asu was yet to be reached for comments as regarding the contract.

Calls to his line on Thursday morning and Friday rang but he did not take the call.

However, government house sources say the Governor, Senator Ben Ayade may have given the go ahead to start construction with the new yam by the corner to give his kinsmen something to discuss as they travel home for the annual new yam festival in September.

But, CrossRiverWatch gathered that there are plans to turn the road into a major entry and exit point for trade and businesses as the plan is to dualize it from the Aloma fuelling station along Ogoja road through Calabar road – Animal junction – Bishiri road – Girls secondary school road to Mbazeri in Vandeikya local government area of southern Benue state.

There is no signage containing information about the road construction.
