UN: Our assets in Calabar have been vandalised

The United Nations has disclosed that its assets have been vandalised in Calabar, the capital of Cross River.

This was disclosed by Edward Kallon, US resident and humanitarian coordinator in Nigeria on Sunday via Twitter.

He also shared photos showing a mob destroying UN 5 and invading the global agency’s facility in Calabar.

The organisation condemned the attack, saying the vandals seek to discredit the peaceful protests to end police brutality.

Kallon called on the youth to engage in dialogue with the government in achieving their demands rather than perpetuating violence.

“The United Nations in Nigeria strongly condemns attacks on its assets in Calabar by vandals who were out to discredit the peaceful protests to end police brutality. I call on youths to exercise restraints and engage in dialogue with the Government on their legitimate demands,” he tweeted.

In the past few days, there have been multiple attacks on public infrastructure by mobs in several states across the country.

Buildings have been set ablaze, warehouses looted and vehicles vandalised.
