Governor Ben Ayade, of Cross Rivers state

Gov. Ben Ayade of Cross River says the state will require N5 billion to repair the Calabar International Conference Centre (CICC) vandalized by hoodlums.

Ayade made this known on Monday while reaffirming the curfew imposed on Calabar and its environs.

The hoodlums had on Friday and Saturday took advantage of the #ENDSARS protests and looted items in the center after they vandalized it.

“It will take the state government N5 billion to bring back the Calabar International Conference Centre, the beauty of Cross River State.

“This is not the Cross River that I was born into; it is unlike us,’’ the governor said.

Ayade said that the action would have a negative impact on the progress of the state’s industrialization efforts aimed at job creation.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that police and other security agencies deployed to the town had started raiding the suspected criminal hideouts with a view to recovering the looted items. (NAN)
