Kiss Daniel Robbed in Calabar as Robbers Invade Village
The regular carnival in Calabar has had its fair share of robbery incidents but this has to be one of the most brazen acts as robbers made a statement yesterday Monday 26 December.
Daniel Anidugbe, aka Kiss Daniel, was performing live on stage when armed robbers stormed the Calabar Christmas Village and had people scampering to safety after they were attacked.
The robbers shot sporadically into the air while dispossessing people of their valuables at about 1:00am when they stormed the village.
Several people were stabbed and injured even as it hasn’t been confirmed if there were any deaths even as some others, who sustained gunshot injuries, were sent to hospitals to receive treatment.
An eyewitness report stated that Kiss Daniel was robbed on stage even as the robbers rushed to the stage during the pandemonium and succeeded in removing some items from the musician before he was whisked away by security operatives present at the venue.
The village is located in the Calabar Municipal Council Secretariat, and is open for 24 hours during the time of the carnival.
Different people also gave reports on how they were robbed even as the state Commissioner of Police, Mr. Jimoh Ozi-Obeh, stated that there was a misunderstanding between the organisers rather than a robbery.
