Andrea Ekeng Inyang, the special assistant on strategic communication to Cross River Governor, Ben Ayade, has recalled how he once abandoned his wife and ran for his life following an encounter with some gunmen.
Inyang, who detailed the incident in a Facebook post, claimed that four years ago, while he and his wife were returning from church, a group of armed men suddenly halted in front of their car and started shooting sporadically into the air.
He said that in the spur of the moment, he completely forgot that his wife was beside him and raced for cover.
He said that only after reaching a safe place did he think about his wife, and he felt ashamed for only thinking about himself at the point of danger.
Read his full narration below,
“4 years ago, my wife and I were returning from church in the evening around Atamunum, Next we saw a Toyota Corolla pull up infront of us and 3 guys jumped out of the car and fired shots into the air.
Omo, I forget marriage oh. I run go burst person veranda enter first before I come remember say I waka with my wife. She even ran and took cover elsewhere. After the boys had finished their operations, I felt very embarrassed coming out to face her.
A whole SA to Governor, a stand well comrade and a respected stakeholder in the community, running like an antelope. So before you come here to say you can’t run and leave your spouse, make sure you’re used to the sound of guns.”
