A 100 level (Year 1) student of Mechanical Engineering of Cross River State University of Technology (CRUTECH), Inyang David and a nursing mother have lost their life when a high-tension cable fell on top of their building at 14 Adak Uko Street in Calabar on Monday night. Probably they must have been killed by electrocution.

Poor electric cable connection has taken the lives of so many in Nigeria, but it seems that (or rather) the government has chosen to play mute.

According to landlord of the building, Mr Obo who said that the falling cable is common usual thing in the area but falling on the roof is rare.
He said this time was the first time it fell on the roof of twelve tenats, it caused an inferno which took the life of two persons

Mr Obo also said, since the incident took place nobody from the fire service or the Port Harcourt Electricity Distribution Company showed up. Hearing from the friend of the deceased student, Tolale Prince Harmony, he also confirmed that the cable had been falling several times in the past. But when contact are made to the PHEDC office in Calabar they kept referring them to Port Harcourt.

“They keep directing the people to call Port Harcourt. I am wondering, what does Port Harcourt have to do with this? I don’t understand. During the fire, they called the fire service and they said no water, no imprest, nothing to run. I don’t understand this. The cable fell on the building. And caused a fire that killed Inyang David and killed another lady, who just gave birth, and did child dedication just two Sundays ago. Cross River should come into play because it has affected a citizen of the state. The government should do something to ensure its citizens are in good condition.”

Harmony led a protest to the Governor’s Office  on Tuesday lamenting that the deceased was an only child, whose father was late. Special Adviser to the Governor on Student Affairs, Prince Michael Abuo, said the governor is going to ensure the issue is addressed so it does not happen again.

Read this narration by twitter handle, @Wenogetjob, which tells of how he eavesdropped on a couples conversation of a duping man. The man rented a house for 2 month, bought expensive items worth up to N50 million on credit. Left the rented apartment with all the appliances he has not paid for, after winning the trust of the sellers.

Hey peepz, I have a gist tho I don’t know if it’s true or not..But I will say it Sha. I was just walking on the street 2receive fresh air when I saw a couple. d man was telling his wife about an incident. I kukuma slowed down an walked behind them to hear d full gist.

It was more like a scam story. A certain man walked up to a Landlord in our area and requested to rent his apartment for 2 months, with the excuse that he was traveling to Canada and just came to Lagos for the Visa Processing.. They agreed on 150K.

The man paid and took ownership of the apartment.He then went out to Vendors in town and negotiated to buy expensive items on lease. With installment payment plans.. He was said to have collected home appliance worth N50,000,000 from various vendors.

He then took them all to the apartment one by one to build trust. At least once they know he lives there, they can easily come around and pack their stuffs if he defaults, these people didn’t know what would hit them was going to be deadlier than Tsunami.

As agreed with the Landlord, the man packed out even earlier than expected… Left with all the items, of which he had not finished the payment..and the Landlord was so happy to have struck a better deal He immediately rented out the apartment to another family.

One by one, the creditors began to come in and same story was relieved to them.. Some fainted, some threatened hell fire …. To cut the long story short, Baba Ijebu was arrested alongside the new tenant.. You know Naija now… #POLICE  no wan hear wuen

They were only saved after a Landlord intervened. He is a legal practitioner and took up the case. But sincerely speaking. I wonder how some people feel at rest knowing fully well their victims would suffer.  I guess it all centers on lack of conscience. This is bad #dojon
