Yesterday an elderly man who seemed lost was found by residents of Inyang Ekeng Street, Calabar South, Cross River State.
The man who gave his name as Mr. Eno-Obong Nathaniel a native of Akpabuyo was found at about 9:41am yesterday Wednesday sleeping in the farm of the first victim of the attempted robbery of Church of Christ at no. 2 Hawkins Road when he went to plug some Okro.
According to the displaced man who could not tell his age, he is a brick layer who resides in Ogoja but came to Calabar as a result of his ill health.
He said, “I came to the hospital here in Calabar because I feel ill, I can’t control waste discharge immediately I feel like urinating or passing stool it just drops and that is what happened that I entered this farm to cover up by lying there till I’m dry but before I knew, sleep took me and it rained heavily on me throughout the night.
“I was shy because of the embarrassment, I have a wife and two daughters that I left since 1977 when we were staying at no. 3 Abasi Obori lane Calabar but all my effort to locate them has not yield any fruit”.
He went on to disclose that he has a second wife at Ogoja named Veronica and a daughter from her named Atim. He appealed to good spirited individuals to come to his aid as he has been stranded for months.
