Soldiers Beat Driver To Death In Calabar; Passengers Didn’t Wear Face Masks

A Taxi driver was reportedly beaten to death yesterday by security operatives, for carrying passengers who were not wearing face masks.

 

An eyewitness @ayebechristopher, revealed that the incident occurred at Marian in Calabar, Cross River State's capital.

 

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.

 

The Instagram user wrote;

 

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

Soldiers shouldn't act so unruly every time.
We have soldiers out there who put citizens first but here their power and training controls them

This is an example of what happened In Delta State few days ago ..
Some army personnel are just in the army to waste lives...
It's so bad and sad the some citizens lost their lives not to Corona but to some ungodly soldiers...

This is at the peak. Is it the function of a driver to provide nose cover or face mask to his passenger hell no! Too bad
