The Speaker, Cross River State House of Assembly, Hon. Eteng Jonah Williams has condemned the renewed communal crisis between the Ebom and the Usumutung communities in Abi Local Government Area of Cross River State.

In a statement by his Press Secretary, Mr. Hope Obeten, the Speaker expressed regrets that the two sister communities will resort to acts of violence against each other despite Governments’ effort in restoring peace in the area.

He said: “The renewed crisis which has led to a father and son allegedly beheaded is seriously worrisome. I, therefore appeal, to the people of the affected communities to remain calm and appreciate the fact that there is no alternative to peace while investigations are ongoing by security agencies to ensure that the perpetrators are identified and brought to book.”

He added that henceforth such unlawful redress and despicable expression of grievances shall be firmly punished in line with extant laws.

Mr. Speaker condoles with those who lost their loved ones and assured that the 9th Assembly will introduce a conflict management architecture that will engage with relevant stakeholders to ensure lasting peace returns to warring communities across the State.
