“Policemen just arrived this place and started arresting us, claiming that the arrest was an order from above. Most of us were even eating and we were ordered to abandon our food and drinks. I just closed from work and because my wife travelled, I came here to have a meal before going home and now I have been arrested and thrown into a truck. They say I cannot carry my car, like several other persons also arrested”, an arrested source texted www.calitown.com.
Believed to be in a high security area, several residents of Calabar frequent the bar and eateries there because of the level of security present. “I come here to relax because in Calabar South where I live, the level of insecurity there is high and now that I have been arrested, I don’t think I will come here again”, another source said.
