By Victor UDU

The Managing Director of Cross River Tourism Bureau, Prince Ojoi Ekpenyong, has stated unequivocally that the KADA CINEMAS is still operational and not burnt as being purported in some social media platforms.

In a statement made available to newsmen in Calabar on Sunday, Ojoi called on the public to disregard the misinformation going round in social media that the Kada Cinemas Calabar has been completely burnt down following a fire outbreak in one of its studios.

According to him, only one of the four studios was affected by fire incident caused by electrical surge at the weekend.

The statement read in part: "There was a fire outbreak in one of the studios due to electrical surge on Saturday, February 17, 2024 at about 10:20pm.

"The fire incident was contained in Studio 4 where the flames broke out and did not impact on other areas.

"We, therefore, wish to put it on record that the Kada Cinemas is NOT BURNT DOWN. All other sections: The VIP, Studios 1, 2 and 3 are not affected and are intact.

"Businesses at the complex including the Bistro, and ticketing areas are fully functional. However, once cleaning is completed, hopefully, later on , the cinema will be opened to movie lovers and fun seekers within the week.

"We call on the public to disregard the misinformation going on in Social Media regarding Kada Cinemas.

"Ojoi maintained that the management remain committed to serving the members of the public the best of entertainment and relaxation while seeking for support and understanding in the present circumstances.

He revealed that the management is working with the relevant agencies to determine what led to the fire incident, while we commend the EPZ fire fighters for their prompt intervention.
