Many people suffered gunshot injuries during a rally of the All Progressives Congress (APC) held in Echumofana community, Yala Local Government Area, Cross River, last Saturday.

It was gathered that the gunshot was from an accidental discharge that came from a riffle of a Policeman attached to an appointee of Governor Ben Ayade.

Sources revealed to The Nation that about seven persons were injured by the incident, adding that “it occurred in the midst of the cheering crowd when Mr. Alphonsus Ogar Eba Esq, the Cross River State Director General of Due Process and Price Intelligence Bureau came to the venue to meet many others at the venue who all joined him to defect from the PDP to the APC.”

Confirming the incident to newsmen on Tuesday, Ogar Eba said “it was an unfortunate incident – an accidental discharge. We thank God, no one died.”

According to the government official, he has visited the victims severally in the hospital and had taken responsibility of all the medical bills.

Eba also absolved the Police Orderly of negligence staingd that “it was purely a spiritual battle by evil doers but God showed up to put the devil to shame as always.”

He warned those spreading unnecessary rumors of death and distorting facts to stop the falsehood.

According to him, some political opponents have been calling the hospital staff to demand for hospital bills. He warned those doing such to stop playing politics on the lives of “our people. By the grace of God I have the means to pay the medical bills of the affected persons and to cater for their well-being afterwards.”

Eba also appealed to the families of the victim for calm and requested that they pull back from any contrary steps and allow measures instituted to address the collective pains to play out
