The UNICAL Law Class of 1997 has disowned a petition which was released to CrossRiverWatch by some members of the class, calling on the Commissioner of Police to ensure thorough prosecution of the Dean of Faculty of Law, UNICAL, Professor Cyril Ndifon who is being investigated by the police over allegations of a raping a 20 year old, 400 level student in his faculty office.

CrossRiverWatch, later gathered that the petition was sent to us by some members of the Class without securing the consent and endorsement of majority of their members.

After the publication, there was a rumpus among members of the class who have now demanded a retraction of the statement.

Consequently, the group in a short retraction by Barrister James Ibor, has disowned the petition and promised that the group is still consulting with members and will issue a statement after securing the endorsement of majority of their members.

“This is to inform members of the public that the petition presently circulating on social media purportedly written by a named section of the membership of the Law Class of 1997 of the University of Calabar was not authorized by them. Please disregard same.

“I regret the embarrassment caused to all the persons wrongly named as signatories in the petition. An authorized statement duly signed will be published soon.” The statement said.

In view of the development, CrossRiverWatch has also unpublished the previous link from our archives.
