Gunmen suspected to be assassins on Thursday evening ambushed and killed the chief architect in the Works and Physical Planning unit of Cross River University of Technology, Bassey Ekpenyong Inyang, as he was arriving at his residence with his wife.

An eyewitness account had it that the suspected assassins had arrived in a bus and parked close to the home of the former secretary of Calabar South Local Government while waiting for their target.
It was gathered that the unsuspecting non-academic staff member, also known as Bachang, drove into the arms of the assailants, who gunned him down.

“As he arrived at his home at Airport Road, Anantigha area of Calabar, the gunmen came out of a bus, shot and killed him on the spot. They also took his wife’s phone,” the eyewitness narrated.

The Public Relations Officer in charge of the Cross River State Police Command, Irene Ugbo, when contacted, confirmed the incident.

“The man and his wife were coming back from church when some people attacked them. No arrest has been made. We are investigating the incident.

“However, we had a breakthrough this morning. We arrested two robbery suspects with a locally made pistol in Calabar South. They are currently in our custody. We are waiting for the DPO of Efut to transfer the case to State CID,” she said.
