But for divine mercy of God, two Cross Riverians, Prince Jeremiah Ashang and Paul Ugian would have been facing judgment in heaven, as they ought to have been long killed by the Cross River State Chief of Staff, Mr Martin Orim.
Secrets Reporters gathered that on the 18th of July 2015, at 1.15pm, the duo were having some bottles of drink at Gramic Hotel, along Ranch Road, Obudu, Calabar where Orim was also hanging out. An argument occurred which never went down well with the Chief of Staff, who felt insulted that Jeremiah and Paul challenged his own view in the course of the argument.
At this point, he flared up and ordered the two mobile policemen, Corporals Yohanna Dabo and Abbas Iliya of the Police Mobile Force 11, Calabar, and attached to him to start flogging the two helpless citizens with whips, while using the butt of their guns to deal with them mercilessly. While this was ongoing, the two mobile policemen were given an express order to tear their cloths and shoot them to death. Jeremiah and his cousin on hearing the order to kill struggled to escape. They have already contacted a human rights lawyer, Okoi Obono-Obla to sue the COS for N100 million.
Orim who is widely known to be a proud government official hates to be challenged. According to competent sources; he demands that people lick his feet and bow before him.
