A trader (unnamed) has been banished from Obudu for attempting to plant charms in the Obudu main market.

The trader, said to be of Igbo origin has been selling curtains at the Uquart street axis of the market close to Adie Agiopu street and was caught by the vice chairman of the market association at about 4:00AM on Thursday alongside a member of the vigilante while digging the hole close to his shop.

“The vice chairman normally does rounds in the morning to check on the vigilante and when he got to that point, he flashed his torch and caught them,” the youth president of Obudu urban, Mr. Unimke Sunday told CrossRiverWatch.

The Obudu Urban traditional rulers council led by Chief Patrick Isoja held a meeting and decided to banish him CrossRiverWatch gathered.

The trader is said to have been fined some traditional items and as at 4:00PM on Thursday, was accompanied to the River Aya; the boundary between Obudu and Bekwarra local government area.
