Cross River Governor, Senator Ben Ayade has confirmed that he left the State capital, Calabar at the peak of the violent looting spree that happened between Friday and Saturday.

His aides had initially denied claims he “ran” out of the State.

“No more MoU’s or Intellectual Money. The people of Calabar don’t care how much you know, until they know how much you care. True Leaders don’t run,” Richard Duke of the Efik Leadership Foundation had shared, Saturday night on Facebook.

But, an aide to Governor Ayade, Michael Abuo described it as “falsehood” in his comment.

“Stop this falsehood and Promotion of hate… Governor Ayade is still in Cross River State… Calabar!,” Abuo wrote minutes later.

However, upon return, the Governor visited several media houses in Calabar in an attempt to address residents on the need to desist from further looting public and private properties.

“I flew the smallest airplane out of the State,” Ayade said while speaking on Hit 95.9 FM on Sunday afternoon.

The Governor said he went on a “covert mission” to Abuja to meet with the Presidency with demands and returned with “more support” according to one of his media aides, Edward Egbelo.
