The United Nations says its assets in Calabar, Cross River capital, have been vandalised. 

Edward Kallon, UN resident and humanitarian coordinator in Nigeria, announced the development via Twitter, on Sunday.

He shared photos showing a mob destroying UN vehicles and invading the global agency’s facility in Calabar.

The organisation condemned the attack, saying the vandals seek to discredit the peaceful protests to end police brutality.

Kallon called on the youth to engage in dialogue with the government in achieving their demands rather than perpetuating violence.

“The United Nations in Nigeria strongly condemns attacks on its assets in Calabar by vandals who were out to discredit the peaceful protests to end police brutality. I call on youths to exercise restraints and engage in dialogue with the Government on their legitimate demands,” he tweeted.

In the past few days, there have been multiple attacks on public infrastructure by mobs in several states across the country.

Buildings have been set ablaze, warehouses looted and vehicles vandalised.
