Gov. Ayade decries renewed communal clashes, killings in C/River



Gov. Ben Ayade of Cross River has warned warring communities in the state to sheath their swords or face the wrath of the law.

The governor described as unacceptable the renewed hostilities in Abi Local Government Area of the state.

The warning is contained in a statement by Mr Christian Ita, the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor on Monday in Calabar.

The warning is coming on the heels of the state Police command confirmation of the beheading of a father and son in a renewed hostility between Usumutong and Ebom communities in Abi local government area of the state.

The police command made the confirmation through its spokesperson, DSP Irene Ugbo.

Ayade in the release asked the warring communities to tow the path of peace and avoid hostilities.

“It is heart-rending to note that at a time government is working on consolidating the prevailing peace in Cross River, some communities have chosen to go back to the trenches.

“While security personnel have been mobilised to the troubled communities to de-escalate the crisis, I hereby call on the warring sides to halt every act of aggression.
