Magistrate slumps at Governor Ayade’s office entrance as protest enters day 2 [photo]

One of the magistrates protesting the non-payment of their two years salary in Cross River State, Richard Bassey, has slumped at the gate of the Governor’s Office in Calabar.

The victim was painfully revived by his colleagues and other staff of the Governor’s office in Calabar by pouring water on him.

A witness who gave his name as Godwin Effiom lamented the incident which occurred on Tuesday at the Governor’s office gate and alleged that the Deputy Governor, Prof Ivara Esu drove past when the incident occurred.

“It surprises me about the kind of leaders we have these days, because a deputy governor of a State can pass through the gate of the governor’s office and saw a large crowd trying to revive a victim, and he drove past. It’s unfortunate,” he stated.

Recall that a magistrate, Safiya Iyeh Ashipu, of the Chief Magistrate Court, Odukpani and her two children started the protest in front of the Cross River State Governor’s office over the non-payment of two years salary on Monday.
