An unknown suspected burglar attempted breaking into the Secretariat of Association of Cross River Online Journalists (ACROJ) in Calabar, the State capital.
The attempt was discovered Monday (July 19, 2021) morning (between 7:30am and 8:30am) when the office attendants resumed for work.
Confirming the incident, the Secretary of ACROJ, Comrade Archibong Jeremiah said a complain has been lodged with the Police.
His words, “Though, at the moment, nothing has been noticed to be missing but we have reported to the Police and we are watching.
“My colleagues upon resuming from the weekend noticed that the front door was tampered with and left open, the burglar couldn’t have access to the main building because the doors were fortified. But we’re suprised as to who would want to have illegal access to our premises and for what reason.”
Association of Cross River Online Journalists is a registered union of online journalists/new media practioners in Cross River State.
