Violence erupts in Uyo.

Uyo, the Akwa Ibom state capital is currently in a state of pandemonium, with shops and business outfits being looted by hoodlums.

While the cause of the  violence which broke out a while ago hasn’t yet been ascertained; some eyewitnesses claim a soldier shot at one of the #EndSARS protesters at the popular Ibom Plaza, which resulted in the outbreak of violence.

Some other reports indicate that the outbreak of violence is caused by a superiority battle between rival cult groups in the state.

As at press time, shops around the barracks road and Ikot Ekpene road axis of the city are being vandalised and looted.

Properties belonging to First Bank and Access Bank have so far been vandalised.
