John Inyang, The Commissioner for Lands and Urban Development in Cross River State temporarily lost his cool with a CrossRiverWatch correspondent following his persistent inquiry over why staff of the ministry locked the yet–to–be-opened radio station belonging to former NNPC top gun, Jedy Agba.

Inyang had initially declined comments claiming he was yet to be briefed by the team that was enforcing the directive which he did not explain.

Later in the day, when he was asked about the sealing off of buildings in the metropolis, He said that: “They have not reported back to me, they will bring case file or field file on Monday because they are still in the field as at when you called me”.

When asked in particular if the directive to seal the radio station emanated from his office and why the decision was taken, he lost his cool and yelled: “Why are you peculiar about radio station? Was it only radio station you heard was sealed? Why are you peculiar about radio station? I thought you would ask me directives for them to carry out the exercise generally, why radio station? … We will talk about the exercise next week please.”

CrossRiverWatch recently reported that the radio station belonging to the former Peoples Democratic Party gubernatorial aspirant who defected to the All Progressives Congress earlier this year was locked by staff of the ministry with people barred from accessing it.

However, unconfirmed information reaching our newsroom suggests that the Obudu born politician was yet to get his complete land papers.

Sources had informed CrossRiverWatch that the radio station is set to begin test transmission on October 1, 2016.
