The age long land dispute which led to the destruction of lives and property between the people of Idum Mbube in Ogoja Local Government Area and Kachuan Irruan in Boki Local Government Area of Cross River State has been finally resolved.

In a statement signed by a member of the Cross River State House of Assembly representing Boki 2 state constituency Hon. Jacob Otu Enyia said the resolution was sequel to the initiative of opinion leaders in the warring communities who constituted themselves for the peace deal.

Hon. Enyia who is also one of the initiators of the peace move commended the intermittent intervention by the State Government and the two Local Government Areas for accepting to stop bloodshed and destruction of property.

According to Hon. Enyia the present peace deal was based on physical demarcation and tracing as well as acceptance of the boundary lines by members of the two communities.

The lawmaker charged the youths of the two communities to uphold the sanctity of the peace accord, noting that a peaceful environment would usher in more meaningful development to the communities.

He called on the State Government and the Surveyor – General of the State to immediately move into the area, survey the land and provide lasting physical beacons along agreed boundary lines.

It would be recalled that due to the failure of committees set up by State and Local Government to resolve the conflict, a joint committee made up of opinion leaders and elites of the two communities was constituted.
