It was gathered that another person was killed at a university’s premises yesterday morning.

Also one of the twins, who was shot on Saturday night and reportedly escaped with bullet wounds was also reported dead yesterday.

Ms Irene Ugbo, the Cross River State Police Public Relations Officer, who confirmed the killings, said the police are on top of the situation with five persons arrested.
