When Cross Rivers state governor gave directives that security operatives in the state should ensure vehicle owners pay N300,000 fine if they carry passengers who didn’t wear nose mask.
Many Nigerians anticipated that extrajudicial killings and inhuman treatment from security agents will become the order of the day in the state.
It has not been long yet, a Taxi driver has already been reported beaten to death by security operatives. The driver was said to be carrying passengers who were not wearing face masks.
Not only should the security agents involved held responsible for this man’s death, Governor Ben Ayade should also be held accountable for this avoidable death.
An eyewitness @ayebechristopher, revealed that the incident occurred yesterday at Marian in Calabar, Cross River State.
He said the driver who was wearing a face mask when he was stopped, was beaten by security operatives till he collapsed. He was confirmed dead thereafter.

“WHO said only wear Mask if you’re sick or taking care of a sick person but the Governor of CRS with his own eye service, so they’ll say he’s fighting Corona too came out and said you must wear Nose Mask else you stay indoors, (that’s actually not the problem) but why not give the Law Enforcement Agents you’re using proper orientation.
“Now they’ve killed someone. Shey you’re happy now ? Is that what other States with Covid-19 cases are doing ? No confirmed case in Calabar yet and you’ve started killing people. This is really sad. The mask you even said you’ll distribute was only distributed in Government House. Na wa ooo”
