OBUBRA—A bloody communal clash between the people of Izzi Local Government Area of Ebonyi State and their neighbours from Osopong 1 & 2 in Obubra Local Government Area of Cross River State is feared to have left 3 persons dead, 3 severely injured and scores of houses reportedly set ablaze.
The bloody clash which was said to have erupted on the 24th of March, 2019 has reportedly left the communities in Osopong 1 & 2 deserted by the Izzi people as the people were said to have fled the community.
Consequently, the people of Obubra have sent a save our soul, SOS, to the Cross River State Government to urgently rescue them from being wiped out by Izzi people.
According to the Mbembe People Assembly, MPA President, Hon King Omenyi from the area informed weetalknaija Blog that “over 3 persons have been killed, 3 severely injured in the fracas while several houses and yam banks worth millions of naira have been set ablaze in Ofonekom, Idoru and Ijutum communities.
“Recalled that, the governor, Ben Ayade had called for a reconciliation meeting which was held in Port Harcourt, to see how the major waring communities would embrace a long lasting peace, yet the Wawas are still invading and killing our people”, Omenyi added.
“After that, they went and reinforced and launched an unprovoked attack with sophisticated weapons, killing and destroying houses. The casualties we have recorded in this attack are only on our own side. If the government fails to intervene immediately, our communities may be wiped out because of the tension coming from the Wawas”.
“We want the government to bring the National Boundary Commission to, as a matter of urgency, come and demarcate our boundary with Ebonyi State as the best permanent solution to constant clashes between us and the Ebonyi people,” Omenyi said
