#EndSARS: Horror as Hoodlums Set Chronicle Newspapers, SEMA Ablaze In Calabar (video)
Tension has been hovering in Calabar lately as bandits have taken on the responsibility of wreaking havoc.
According to Vanguard, thugs who raided various government-owned warehouses set fire to the state emergency agency, SEMA warehouse, including the advertising department of the state-owned Calabar Newspaper Corporation.
Vanguard learned that thugs from different parts of the metropolis had previously attacked a warehouse on Bishop Moyne Street, another at the Ministry of Labor, then in Ecoinim, SEMA was collecting COVID-19 palliatives and supplies from the federal government and corporations.
Employees who claimed to be anonymous told Vanguard that they had completely burned down the advertising department and ransacked some of the Newspaper Corporation offices, which also houses SEMA and its warehouse.
“When people arrived, it was very quiet, but tension was building along the line and there was a crush. I can’t say if any life has died at the moment, it was because of this crush that the robbers began to resort to violence and they set fire to the warehouse and part of the administrative office of the Newspaper Corporation (advertising department), he said.
