A lecturer with the University of Calabar, Dr. Godwin Iwatt (pictured) on Tuesday afternoon received a cruel birthday wish as he was shot in his office by suspected student cultists.

Dr. Iwatt, a lecturer in the department of microbiology was recently appointed the examination officer of the department. He finished his Phd programme last year from the same university and in two days’ time will be a year older. He was shot in the stomach and was rushed to the  General Hospital Calabar where he is still in a  coma at the emergency unit of the hospital  with doctors battling to save his life.

A student who spoke to our correspondent said, “Usually, when final exams are just concluded like this, some of the graduating students who have been holding grudges against fellow students or lecturers see it as an opportunity to revenge or take their pound of flesh.

“They assume that because they are departing the school, they can foment trouble and get away with it”.

It would be recalled that one Dr. Akpan, a lecturer in the Political Science department was shot in company of the Vice Chancellor of the University at Big Munch fast food in Calabar immediately after last year’s final examinations.
