President Buhari urges calm as violence in Cross River allegedly claims lives

Alleged violence in four communities in Biase Local Government Area of Cross River State has reportedly resulted in loss of lives, injuries and displacement of villagers.

Consequently, President Muhammadu Buhari has expressed concerns over the issue.

The President, in a statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, in Abuja on Tuesday, called for calm and restoration of peace in the affected communities bordering Abia State.

Buhari urged the people of the areas to allow law and order to prevail.

“Our communities must be ready to live together in peace since no development can take place in an atmosphere of recurring violence,” he said.

President Buhari, who commended the state government for the steps taken so far towards bringing peace to the areas, also lauded the State Police Command for speedily mobilising its personnel to the affected communities to contain the crisis.

He urged all stakeholders to cooperate and ensure that lasting peace returns to the affected areas.

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that many people were feared killed and hundreds of others displaced when violence broke out in Abanwan, Urugbam, Egbor and Ipene communities occasioned by misunderstanding over the sale of a land.
