President Buhari wades into Boki violence


Nov. 28, 2019

By DAVID IORJA, Abuja – President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday strongly condemned on-going violence in the Boki Local Government Area of Cross River State, which has in the past 24 hours led to a yet to be ascertained number of deaths and arson attacks.
Garba Shehu, the Senior Special Assistant to the President (Media and Publicity), made this known in a statement issued in Abuja.
So far, there have been claims and counter claims as who restarted the killings and arson between  neighbouring  Nsadop  and the Boje communities.
According to the statement, “while the origin of the mayhem is still unclear, President Buhari notes that no dispute or grievance is worth the violent snatching away of another person’s life. Nigerians must learn to live peacefully with each other and seek less brutish means of resolving conflicts. Our country does not need another war.”
“President Buhari understands that our security agencies are already intervening to bring an end to the crisis. He also makes an urgent call on the Cross River State government and the Boki local government authorities  to immediately look into the crisis and take action to ensure that this unfortunate situation is resolved both in the short and long terms,” the statement said.
