The University of Calabar announced on Wednesday that the alleged kidnapper, John Ewa, also known as “John Lyon,” had not attended the school.
The university’s administration reportedly reacted angrily to the media claim and labeled it false in a statement released in Calabar by the institution’s registrar, Mr. Gabriel Egbe.
Recall that Ewa was detained by the Bayelsa Police Command in connection with kidnapping activities and then paraded before the media.
“The said John Ewa was never a student of the university, neither did he graduate from the institution.
“We urge members of the public to discountenance any information linking John Ewa to our prestigious university,” Egbe said in the statement.
