For Bakassi: Seadogs Take to The Streets in Abuja/Calabar

In Breaking News, Reports

The Abuja and Calabar chapters of the National Association of Seadogs (Pirates Confraternity) today made real their promise to protest the lackadaisical attitude of the federal government to the call by most sections of the country for the appeal of the International Court of Justice judgment that ceded the Peninsular to Cameroon ten years ago.

The organisation had said that they owed the people of Bakassi and entire Nigerians a duty to bring to the fore the current plight of Bakassi people.

They said: “We will hold a peaceful demonstration to raise awareness of the current plight of the indigenous people of Bakassi, the Nigerian enclave that was ceded to the government of Cameroon following the October 10, 2002 judgment of the International Court of Justice, ICJ.

“As an organisation, we have been involved in the fight for the betterment of human society through activities, including but not limited to the struggle for the emancipation of the people of Darfur in Western Sudan from suffering and persecution as a result of the lingering war there, via the Save Darfur Initiative in 2007 and 2008.

“We believe that as a Nigerian organisation, we owe the people of Bakassi and indeed the entire Nigerians a duty to bring to the fore the current plight of Bakassi people.”

Details of the protest were still sketchy as at the time of filing this report but our sources report that members of the group started gathering as early as 10am for the peaceful processions that was scheduled to begin at 12noon at both locations.

We will give you further details as we receive them.
