Emerging reports have revealed that robbers invaded the Akwa Ibom State Government House carting away money running into millions of Naira.

The money stolen was meant to be used as payment for various accrued expenses.

The undisclosed sum was said to have been stolen from the office of the Secretary to Governor Udom Emmanuel’s spokesman, Ekerette Udoh.

The thieves reportedly damaged the locks of the office, gained access before taking the money away.

Though an official statement is yet to be made about the development, a source quoted in a report by Daily Trust said:

“The money came in yesterday afternoon but they refused to share it with the people it was meant for. So, the thief came in the night and destroyed the keys and gained access to the office of the Secretary to the CPS.

“This is not the first time the government house press centre is being robbed. We have lost about three Plasma televisions, one at the reception, one in the reporter’s office and the other in the office used by cameramen. In all of these, no meeting, no replacement.”

When contacted, the governor’s spokesman confirmed the incident but assured that those who were meant to be paid would get their money.
