Armed men on Friday invaded the new home of Cross River born Nollywood superstar, Shan George in Calabar and carted away valuables.
The robbers who scaled the fence of the compound located around Parliamentary Extention in Calabar broke the rare glass of Shan’s car and gained access into the car to steal valuables before making their way to the leaving room.
When CrossRiverWatch visited Shan George’s home, she told our reporter that, though she was home when the robbers came, she was not hurt in anyway.
“I was in my bedroom when the incident happened. I think they scaled the fence of the house. They broke the glass of my car to unlock the key and then opened the door of the car. They took my money I left in the pigeon hole, jeweleries and other valuables.
“They went into the living room but they must have seen that there is nothing yet in the room because I am just moving into the house and the furnishings are yet to arrive. That must have discouraged them. I was not hurt at all. No member of the family was hurt. It was only my things that they carted away.”
She called on government to do more to ensure that Calabar remains a safe place to live. “Yeah, I realize that the country generally is facing a lot of security challenges at the moment but the State government must realize that without security, everything they are building in Calabar will be a waste.
“But even the boys sef, I no blame them oo, na only my property when them carry pain me if not, work no dey. Hungry dey every where and if government will not give the boys job, how will they eat?
“But e pain me say them no go the house of people wen thief their money and their future na poor man pikin like me them come rob.” She said.
