Five persons were reportedly killed following a March 16, 2013 attack on Adadama community in Abi Local Government of Cross River State by hired militants from Ebonyi State making the invasion the sixth in the past three months.

The Nigeria Army Brigade Commander in Calabar, Brigadier General O.F. Azinta later led a team of soldiers on what was described as a fact finding mission and on the spot assessment, to the boundary line of both Adadama and Amagu on Sunday.

He was accompanied on the trip by the Cross River State Security Adviser, Mr. Bassey Repene and the Member Representing Abi in the Cross River State House of Assembly, Hon. John Gaul.

The team visited Ochoeyim community in Ndi-Amagu, Ebonyi State as well as Adadama community in Abi LGA of Cross River State where they were received at the Adadama police station which was newly constructed by the Cross River State government.

It will be recalled that the new police station was completely vandalized and looted in previous attacks by the Ama-Agwu militants which claimed about fifteen lives with some brutally decapitated.

According to our source that was part of the delegation, the team recovered over 317 used shells of AK47 pellets from the Adadama Police station area alone.

The Brigade Commander along with other security chiefs present including the Commissioner of Police, Ebonyi State Director of SSS, DPO Ikwo Division, Chairman of Ikwo LGA, the Cross River State Security Adviser, Mr. Bassey Repene, DPO of Abi Division and Hon. John Gaul, after a brief deliberation established a joint military patrol under one joint commander to patrol and police the boundary line.

The security chiefs also agreed on routine patrol team on the boundary line as well as the establishment of two observation posts which were to be set up yesterday; one in each of the boundary lines.

A curfew has also been imposed on the farm lands, and the territory is now out of bounds to both communities except military personnel and other security agents.

The delegation also agreed to advise the Cross River State government to commence immediate reconstruction of the Adadama Police station and the grading of the road as part of measures that will assist the police to restore permanent order in the boundary communities.
