The Director General for due process and price intelligence bureau in Cross river state has pleaded that enough of the killings between the Ezza people of Ebonyi state and the people of Obubra Local government area of Cross river state.
In a statement, yesterday, by his Media Assistant, Egbara Emmanuel, Eba described as sad and frustrating, the unabating killings in parts of Cross river and Ebonyi despite repeated peace moves by the Cross river state Government.
Eba in a reaction to the incident condemned the unwarranted killings of innocent citizens, pointing out that the crisis was degenerating to something akin to “war without end,” defying all peaceful approaches.
He said: “I’m aware of various peace initiatives over the incessant clashes resulting to loss of lives and property.
That the killings continue unabated is something beyond the ordinary,we must embrace peace and shun violence.
“Let me once again appealed to the aggrieved communities to sheathe their swords and allow peace to reign.
Whichever side of the divide and whatever vocation you are engaged in, no progress can be made in a crisis-ridden environment.”
“We must all make concerted efforts to achieve peace in our communities.
Our security agencies should rise up to the challenges and protect lives and property. Life is precious and we must not take it for granted.”
