For failing to keep the peace in their communities, the Cross River State governor, Senator Liyel Imoke, has suspended and decertified the clan and village heads in Mbarakom clans of Akamkpa local government area.
They are Ntufam Joseh Iyaha, clan head; Okon B Duke, Ibonda village head; Cyril E. E. E. Itakpa, Ofutop village head; Sirinus Itasima, Egoi Ntufam village head.
Others are Dominic Okon Ajom, Igogim village head, Felix Okon Itakpa, Osung village head, Peter E. Erom, Ejosen village head.
A statement signed by Special Adviser to the governor on Chieftaincy Affairs, Mr John Eyikwaje, stated that government was saddened by their inability to maintain peace in their communities, which resulted in wanton destruction of property and unrest despite efforts in bringing peace and reconciliation to the unending chieftaincy tussle of the Nyakasang community of Mbarakom clan.
