Cultists invade Calabar streets

A dreaded cult group simply known as “ID Boys” on Tuesday invaded some streets of Calabar, Cross River state.

The long procession was moving towards the Hawkins and Eyo Ita cemeteries where they normally meet, Daily Trust learnt.

Efforts to reach the state’s Commissioner of Police, Hafiz Inuwa, and PPRO, Irene Igbo, were unsuccessful as their phones were switched off.
