Gummen kill two sons of Calabar cleric

04 April 2016, 15:08

Calabar - Unknown assailants have killed two sons of the presiding pastor of the Independent Baptist Church in Calabar, Rev. Nicholas Wayih.

The two sons identified as Archibong and Ekpenyong were said to have had a prolonged struggle with the armed men before they were gunned down.

The gunmen, seven in number, were said to have gained access to the expansive compound located at the Efio-Ette junction axis of the Cross River State capital, through the back fence that shares boundary with a welder’s shop.

A close source to the Wayihs disclosed that the clergy’s two sons were said to have engaged the armed men in physical battle after they had gained entry into the residence between 1am and 3am of Tuesday, March 29.

The source, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said it was not clear if it was an outright case of assassination because the intruders started beating the clergy’s three boys that had come out from their rooms on noticing that they had gained entry.
