Reports reaching CrossRiverWatch indicate that students of government secondary school(s) Akim Qua town and Barracks road have been clashing continuously for over a week now following alleged beating of their colleagues in separate incidences by the rival institution.

CrossRiverWatch gathered that it began with students of GSS Barracks road beating a student of GSS Akim somewhere along IBB Way when he went to “flex” sometimes last week, collecting his wallet and several other items in the process which informed the show of camaraderie from the victim’s colleagues who rounded up a student of GSS Barracks road, earlier this week in a reprisal attack.

The face-offs continued all week and climaxed yesterday when students of GSS Akim after closure decided to arm themselves with sticks, rods, stones, and several other improvised cudgels, and laying siege at Rabana roundabout for Students of GSS Barracks road who live around IBB and Marian road axis.

A duel ensued when the two groups met but two Officers of the Nigerian Army stationed at the Headquarters, 13 Brigade Nigeria Army, and several officers of Man O’ War Nigeria, from the state command, waded in, first, pursuing students of GSS Barracks road away from the battle ready GSS Akim students and later asking them to file out in two rows in order to walk through safely, past the ambush point.

Officers of the Nigeria Police Force, Akim division later came in and could be heard warning students of both institutions over the public address system to vacate the area within two minutes or force will be employed.

The police officer leading the teams could be heard complaining about the Principal of GSS AKim whom he said “does not listen”.
