Mr. Eno-Obong Nathaniel, a native of Akpabuyo Local Government who was reported to be sick and stranded in Calabar has given up the ghost.
His lifeless body was found early this morning as at about 6:20am lingering at the edge of a gutter at no. 6A Hawkins road (Government Primary School Hawkins), Calabar.
It will be recalled that the late Mr. Nathaniel on Wednesday 11th June 2014 was found sleeping in the farm of the first victim of the attempted robbery of Church of Christ at no. 3A Hawkins Road where he went to plug some Okro.
He told CrossRiverWatch that, “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 dried 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”.
Mr. Nathaniel added that he has a second wife in 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 in Calabar as a result of his ill health.
Obviously, no help came his way and his frail and emaciated body gave up the ghost in the bush where his body was found this morning.
As at the time of filing this report his dead body was still lying at the edge of the drainage.
