Joseph Odok, a lawyer, a social crusader and a lecturer in the University of Calabar was attacked on Monday, September 4, 2017 by suspected cult boys in Calabar, Cross River state capital.
He was cut with machete and other weapons during the attack and was left seriously wounded by the hoodlums. He is being currently treated at an undisclosed hospital in Calabar.
Before the attack, his last post on Facebook reads, 'People keep talking of Senator Gershom Bassey moving so many motions. I watch plenary and hardly see him talk, are Sen Gershom Bassey's motions moved off camera? So much media can hide the truth. I challenge Sen Gershom Bassey's aides to provide us with video clips of the much talked about Sen Gershom Bassey's motions. We are not giving up in engaging our leaders. We kept quite and we were deceived by media hype when so much rot bedeviled Cross River State water board and can't repeat same mistakes again'.
