Barrister Obong Ini Ekpo Escapes Assassination Attempt
The legal professional that has been working round the clock to get compensation for the founder of a church that collapsed in Uyo Akwa Ibom state last month has been attacked by some gunmen suspected to be hired killers.
Barrister Obong Ini Ekpo was shot on both legs by the gunmen at his home on Thursday.
