Calabar’s Afokang Prison Has A Baby

prison-barsWhile many Cross Riverians seem to have forgotten about what fate befell the four individuals who attempted to rob a woman of cash and were apprehended by a mob on the Murtala Mohammed highway, Calabar, several months ago, sources have just revealed that one of the women, of the four suspects that were arrested and are awaiting trial at the Calabar Prisons, Afokang, Vivian (surname withheld), gave birth to a baby boy on July, 15, 2014, while in detention.

Vivian who hails from Uzuakoli, Abia State, is believed to have been pregnant with the baby when she accompanied her boyfriend on the ill-fated mission that nearly took her life. While the mob that apprehended them stripped them naked, burnt the Audi 80 car they drove in and nearly lynched them, it took the intervention of the Police before the mob’s intentions were aborted.

Recall that Vivian and other suspects are believed to have operated a cash snatching syndicate which targeted persons coming out of banks on Calabar road. What sources suspected to be for Vivian and others nearly took their lives when one operation is suspected to have gone wrong earlier this year. She and others were charged to court for the offence and remanded in prison custody.

Her son has been named Loveday, after the officer in-charge of the station where she is being held.
