Reports say that that two persons have so far been shot dead at Ibom plaza, following a clash between the protesters who insisted on marching to the Government House and the security agencies.


As at the time of filling this report, the Access Bank at Barracks Road and De choice Mall at Ibom Plaza Roundabout, Uyo have been razed down.
Sporadic gunshot’s are also being fired at IBB Road, Nsikak Eduok Lane and other parts of Uyo metropolis.
