INSECURITY: We Need To Revert To Traditional Methods – Bakassi King

In Breaking News, Crime, Politics, Reports

By Jonathan Ugbal

The Paramount Ruler of Bakassi and Chairman of the Cross River state, Etinyin Edet Okon has said that the best way to tackle insecurity is to revert to traditional means used by forebears.

The monarch stated this while addressing the Niger Delta Dialogue’s presentation and validation meeting of “The Reports on Insecurity in the South-South States: Issues, Actors and Solutions” in Calabar on Wednesday where he lamented that the church which they thought would help in communal living, has not been effective.

“The traditional rulers in Cross River State will have to take a second look at some issues to ensure that we live the way we use to.

“We assure you that we shall go back to our native methods to curb crime. We have left it for a very long time for religion to do. We thought that will solve it but it did not. So, we have to back to the way of our forefathers,” he said.

Explaining further, the monarch who said he changed his mind in declining the invitation due to the fact those who contacted him earlier behaved like gangstars, averred that while growing up, no child would steal another’s property as the community always had a way to find out without an error margin.

He maintained that the crime rate has rather soared while we further embrace imported cultures meanwhile, it was at its lowest when the traditional method was preferred.
