The ongoing feud between one of the host communities for the Obudu International cargo airport, Ukambi and state government agents handling the project appears to be getting worse by the day.

CrossRiverWatch just received information that a truck load of soldiers from the Brigadier Ally Cantonment Ogoja, who are currently on duty in Obudu, invaded the community a while ago to harrass, beat up and arrest some of the youths spear heading the resistance to acquiring their community land for the proposed airport. The soldiers were said to have been led to the community by the Site Manager simply identified as Mr Paul.

Surprised women who were already retiring for the day, rushed out to protest the barrassment and arrest of two people

An eye witness told our reporter that two persons, John Izaye and Emmanuel Undie, were forcefully taken away by the soldiers without any explanation.

An amateur video obtained by CrossRiverWatch show women protesting and playing a traditional gong and asking governor Ayade to arrest and take all of them too away. The women are also head saying they will touch the homes of some of their chiefs who have collected ‘bribe’ from the governor. The women vowed to continue to resist the attempt by governor Ayade to take over their farmlands.
