13:36 Nov 28 2019 Cross River State

President Muhammadu Buhari has condemned the violence in the Boki Local Government Area of Cross River State, which has claimed lives.

The people of Boje community and their neighbours in Nsadop community had been fighting in the last 24 hours.

The Presidency said in a statement on Wednesday that the cause of the conflict remained unknown and had claimed “yet-to-be ascertained number of lives and arson attacks.”

The statement released by Buhari’s spokesperson, Mr Garba Shehu, partly read, “So far, there have been claims and counter-claims as who restarted the killings and arson between the neighbouring communities of Nsadop community and the Boje community.

“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.”
