In Breaking News, Reports

By CrossRiverWatch Admin

Sources within the security circle have informed CrossRiverWatch that law enforcement agencies may go after a few hoodlums who perpetrated acts of arson and violence in Calabar, the Cross River State capital between Friday night and Saturday morning.

The State had imposed a 24 hour curfew beginning Friday 6PM claiming the ongoing protests against police brutality had been hijacked.

That followed the ransacking and looting of the Calabar South council secretariat and a warehouse with COVID-19 relied materials from the Private Sector Coalition Against COVID-19 (CACOVID).

But, thugs and other some residents ransacked other places including public and private businesses with some torched despite the curfew.

And, the Police as well the military are said to have fired shots in the air to scare them away from some facilities.

But, given the level of carnage, security agencies are said to be going after some hoodlums intelligence suggests may have been part of the looting with concerns that the curfew may be extended.
