Paul Armond has been arrested by the Police after he poisoned the food his customers bought at an eatery in Ogoja, Cross River State.
Reports have it that the eatery operator is said to be currently undergoing interrogation and he has confessed to putting the poison in the food he sold to his customers.
The suspect, according to Vanguard, allegedly poisoned the customers as a way of getting back at them for an undisclosed reason.
Dr. Patrick Ubi, medical superintendent, general hospital, Ogoja, where the victims were rushed to, said they ate from the same source, adding that it was regular for them to do so everyday between 9am and 10 am.
“After two to three hours, those who ate the food started complaining of abdominal pain; some were vomiting while others were foaming in the mouth”, Ubi said.
