Robbers attack 3 female priests in Calabar


Three female priests of the Brotherhood of the Cross and Star (BCS), Calabar, Cross River State, were reportedly attacked and dispossessed of a huge sum of money and other valuables by armed robbers, last weekend, on their way to morning service.
It was gathered that they were robbed and stabbed in the neighbourhood of Mbukpa/Ambo axis, as they left their homes for morning  service at the BCS world headquarters, 34, Ambo Street, Calabar.
The priests are currently receiving treatment at an undisclosed hospital in the area.
Mr. Michael Effiong, a resident of Itam Street, Calabar South  Local Government Area, also told the Nigerian Tribune that another pregnant member, was also beaten and stabbed by the  armed robbers when she screamed for help.
The Nigerian Tribune learnt that residents in the area and faithful of the religious organisation have  suffered daily violent attacks by the robbers.
Also, at  the weekend, at about 7.00 p. m, seven young men were said to have posed as customers, when they entered  a   supermarket on Mbukpa Road,  close to  Brotherhood headquarters and collected the sales proceeds of the day  with unspecified items at gunpoint.
The state Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), John Eluu, said the  Divisional Police Officer (DPO) of Mbukpa Police Station, had already been directed to increase surveillance in the area.
