UNICAL Official Allegedly Drowns in Hotel Pool

An official of the University of Calabar, UNICAL, simply identified as Mr Ubong, has reportedly drowned in a hotel swimming pool in Calabar.

It was gathered that the incident occurred overnight during the week.

Ubong reportedly went to buy drinks and food at the bar and then dropped off his phone and went to the pool without informing anyone.

Sources at the hotel said that it was at about 2am when the barman, while rendering account, realised that someone had not paid his bills. That was when the search for Ubong started, it was said.
