Men suspected to be personnel of Nigeria’s Secret Police, the SSS are said to have stormed the headquarters of the Ministry of Lands and Housing Development in Calabar, the Cross River State capital on Wednesday to trace the leak of a document earlier published by CrossRiverWatch.

The document contains an approval for funds to allegedly bribe five Paramount Rulers in the State to make available thousands of hectares of land for a “farm settlement” scheme which critics have dismissed as a “pretentious RUGA” scheme.

Government House sources say the Governor, Senator Ben Ayade who is currently out of the country had instructed the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry to lock the offices and invite security personnel to search the mobile phones of all staff to find out who had leaked the document to CrossRiverWatch.

But, after hours of an unfruitful search, the operatives had concluded that since the document had traveled through a few other MDAs, the leak may have been from anywhere.
