The Secretary, Special Task Force Inland Waterways and Revenue, Cross River State, Mr. Cyril Anthony Asuquo, has dragged the lawmaker representing Calabar South/Akpabuyo/Bakassi in the House of Representatives, Hon. Essien Ayi, the Chairman Special Presidential Investigative Panel for the Recovery of Public Property Barrister Okoi Obono Obla, Inspector General of Police, Attorney General of the Federation and the Cross River State Police Commissioner to court over allegations of breach of fundamental human rights in suit number FHC/ABJ/CS/914/18.

The applicant, Mr. Asuquo who spoke exclusively to CrossRiverWatch TV disclosed that why he’s not supporting Essien Ayi’s fifth term ambition is because his not effectively representing his constituents.

Recounting his ordeal, Mr. Anthony revealed that, “Why I really decided to take this matter to Court is because, you know I’ve moved from one Office to the other, more than five Offices they didn’t see anything. In fact the appointment I have, I don’t generate revenue, so I don’t know why Obla is looking for me, he’s just making noise on and on that he wants to bundle me from Calabar to Abuja. I don’t even understand the problem I have with Obla.

“For Essien, I supported him for the fourth term and he is still intending to go back for the fifth term, that’s when I said I wouldn’t be able to support him again I backed out from the system. I don’t want to support him again how can one person be in this same office, for twenty years and he doesn’t want to leave so that the young will grow, you know some of us have intention to contest but if he is still there none of us will have vacancy to contest. He said that if he leaves, he will bring his son back to that same sit. I say no fifth term, if he likes let him take me to Prison yard I still stand by my words no fifth term, fifth term is offence.

“He remains in Calabar, he will leave Calabar on Tuesday go to Abuja, come back to Abuja on Friday every blessed week he will leave on Tuesday come back on Friday that’s why we don’t have anything here, you understand, the position is a waste, let young men go there. We are the true sons of ABC (Apakbuyo/Bakassi/Calabar South), Essien Ayi is from Odukpani he can go back and take over the position of the Paramount Ruler or Village Head, he is old.”

Furthermore, the applicant disclosed that he’s sure Hon. Essien Ayi is behind he’s ordeal.

His words: “You know when security agents arrest you or they invite you at the end of the day when they find out that you are not involved in all those activities you will get information from them.”

He concluded by calling on the Calabar South/Akpabuyo/Bakassi not to allow Hon. Essien Ayi go back for the fifth term which will make it twenty years since he has been representing them.
