By Archibong Jeremiah, CALABAR SOUTH:
About four people have been killed in the renewed gang war Calabar South, Cross River State between members of Skylo and Scorpion.
The first was on Sunday 27th August, 2017 night at Ekpo Abasi Calabar South which claimed the life of a Scorpion gang member. The remains of the unknown Scorpion member was taken the next day by the Police.
The second killing took place on Tuesday 29th August, 2017. The third and fourth was the next day being Wednesday.
The renewed war CrossRiverWatch reliably learnt from impeccable sources began on Sunday night when a hit squad of Scorpion was on the move to repay Skylo for the death of some of its members killed in the last gang war which distorted law and order in Calabar South for about four months.
One of the Scorpion member killed whose death was to be repayed is one late Koksy who was killed at Ewa Ekeng road where he operates a car wash.
As at the time of filing this report all effort made to contact the State Police Public Relations Officer, ASP Irene Ugbo proved abortive.
