Inyambe said, “They went to the river with other people to swim. What really happened nobody knows, but they were later found in the shallow part of the river already drowned.

“I only know one of them, David Unamu, who is a 200 level Civil Engineering student. The other two I don’t know their names for now, but they are all CRUTECH students. David is in the Calabar campus, he lives in Abakpa and yet to resume school, while the other two are in Ogoja campus.

“I don’t know about the other two, but I learnt one of them is a Ghanaian – though his mom is in Lagos State and the other one is from Boki Local Government Area in Cross River State”.

When contacted on phone the Public Relations officer of CRUTECH, Mr. Onen Onen, confirmed the story.

He said, “Actually, another media man called me earlier and that was how I got to know about the story. So, I called someone from the campus who didn’t seem to get the whole story but the story is confirmed. By tomorrow, they should be able to compile their report to send to the school”.
