Uyo Skye Bank MD, brother drown in Ibeno Beach

The duo are said to have gone to the Beach to catch fun during vacation on Sunday but it turned sour as they both died much to the shock of many.

Ubong Ekpe who was married with four lovely children was until his sudden death the Managing Director ((MD) of Skye Bank Abak Road, branch, Uyo.

The death of the fair-skinned MD and that of his brother has thrown the family, friends and colleagues into mourning.

When the news broke on social media, many could not come to terms with the news of their death with some wishing it was not true.

The Ekpes are said to be a popular family in the state whose family house located on Udo Umana Street in Uyo is well-known for the “Ekpe” sculpture in front of the house.

When newsmen visited the deceased house, tears and gloom had engulfed the entire household with members refusing to speak on the matter as they were too shocked by the sad news.

Ace Comedian, Sir. James, while reacting to the death of the late Skye Bank MD, on his facebook page said: “believe me, I have lost a great supporter. One who believes in me, supported all my events.

The news of your being drown alongside your brother at Ibeno Beach yesterday shocks me a great deal.

RIP Big brother Ubong Ekpe

I will forever miss your love.”

The late Ubong was a Catholic faithful who worshipped with his family at St. Anthony’s Parish, Ewet Housing.

He is also said to have owned a football betting centre, Naijabet on Udo Umana Street.

Those who spoke on the demise of Ubong Ekpe described him as a jovial, easygoing and compassionate person. He is also said to have been a philanthropist who was quick to assist those who came to him for one form of help or the other.

Horror in Ukana as Woman’s arms cut off at Akpabio’s house during illegal registration

Published

on

Woman’s arms cut off at Akpabio’s house during illegal registration… abandoned to her fate She was one of the women called to Senator Godswill Akapbio’s house in Ukana for what many present called an illegal registration exercise. She was promised a little over three thousand and like others who may not have known what they were being invited to do, she went innocently, the attraction being the measly three thousand naira she was promised. “We were shocked when we saw people engaging in what I believe was an illegal registration exercise. There were machines all over the place, and Godswill Akpabio who had just returned from a trip outside the State was seen dishing out instructions. Some of us left the house shortly after we discovered they were asking us to register for the APC. We told them we already are card-carrying members of the PDP and that we couldn’t not sell our conscience. As that innocent lady made to leave, the gate at Senator Akpabio’s house slammed against her and her arm was cut off immediately. She started crying and writhing in pains, but to our shock, the security officers pushed her out of the house while blood was dripping all over her. I have never seen such inhumanity to a fellow person. Goodwill Akpabio was notified but he refused to come to the woman’s assistance. We had to pull our little resources to take the woman to the hospital. This is so sad. And it leaves me wondering: is this the kind of change Akpabio’s APC is bringing to Akwa Ibom: wickedness, horror and terror? May God not allow the counsel of the wicked to prevail. Akwa Ibom people must tell Godswill akpabio: no more blood-letting, enough!
