The Information Officer, University of Calabar, Mr. Effiong Eyo, has been attacked by unknown gun men suspected to be either armed robbers or hired assassins.

Competent sources informed CrossRiverWatch that the UNICAL Information Officer was attacked at his house by the unknown gun men in the morning of Friday, and is currently receiving treatment in an unnamed medical facility in the country.

We also gathered that Mr. Eyo was shot in his left hand by the assailants who thought they got him in a place that he would be mortally injured, after which they made away with available cash and household items they could carry.

A call to the personal phone of the Information Officer was received by himself who confirmed that he was attacked by unknown gun men, and that he was receiving treatment in an undisclosed location.

On whether he suspected it was a case of armed robbery or of hired assassins, he said that investigations were already ongoing into the matter by the Nigeria Police, and that until investigations are concluded, he cannot pinpoint whether it was armed robbery or hired assassins.

It could be recalled that CrossRiverWatch had reported the increased robbery attacks in Calabar where several law-abiding citizens have been attacked and assaulted physically by these men of the underworld making away with property worth millions of naira from their victims.

Two weeks ago the Cross River State Chairman of the Nigeria Union of Teachers, Comrade Eyo Eyo-Nsa Itam was attacked by a 12-man robbery gang which included a woman and two of them were arrested and now, the Information Officer is the current victim and several other less prominent individuals.
