A staff of the Cross River Broadcasting Corporation, CRBC, identified as Mr Celestine Eno, has been allegedly poisoned to death in Calabar, the state capital.

“He was dropped from a taxi and laid by the road side demanding for palm oil while substance gushed out of his mouth as onlookers gather and stare in horror. Nobody knew what really happened to him, but I suspect it’s poison”, Ekeng Inyang said.

Another witness, Ud Ofem by name said, “On my way to work this morning, I met this scene by my bus stop, at First Bank, Ekorinim Branch, a very matured, responsible man lying breathless with foam coming out of his mouth.

“I hung around, nosing for the identification of the man and those who saw him earlier said he dropped from a taxi and was asking for palm oil, while he cringed in pain on the ground. So everyone is suspecting poisoning, but on further inquiry from his town’s man I met at the scene, he confirmed the deceased has a case of very High Blood Pressure”, she said.
