Mr. Ogar Ogbudu, has bath over 27 people with acid in Yala Local Government Area in Northern Cross River State.
PARADISE NEWS gathered that the incident occurred on Monday, December 30, 2019, at Ugaga Community where a group of teenagers were having fun.
An eyewitness who gave his name as Omgbidu Savour told PARADISE NEWS that the fight broke between other teenagers and Ogbudu’s son who later came with acid and bath others.
Saviour said, “Some peers, 14 to 15 years of age went to Ugaga picnic and there was a brow. After the picnic, Ogar’s son (name not gotten) went home and equipped himself with weapons and charm, and on his way going to attack the others he earlier had fisticuffs with the victims of the acid bath, discovered he was with weapons and charm, so they started interrogating him.
“After they interrogated him, they decided to send somebody to his dad to come and see as well as hear what is going on. But the dad (Ogar Ogbudu) now came with acid in a container to bath everybody who gathered to resolve the situation and innocent people got burnt by the acid.
“They were more than 27 in numbers and were rushed to the General hospital in Igoli, Ogoja Local Government Area of the State, same night. The perpetrator has been captured by the youths in the community and he’ll be questioned before the elders – he has already been beaten with machetes too”, Omgbidu said.
Efforts to reach the Police Public Relations Officer in Cross River State, DSP Irene Ugbo, proved abortive as her phone line was switched off as at the time of filing this report.
