CROSS RIVER ASSEMBLY: Lawmakers Seek For Peace In Cross River And Ebonyi Communities

LEGISREPORTS NG – The Cross River State House of Assembly on Monday implored the Federal Government to deploy military personnel to quell the ongoing crisis between the people of Adadama in Cross River and Amagu in Ebonyi State.

This request was a sequel to a motion of urgent public interest brought by the member representing Abi State Constituency, Mr. John Lebo before the Assembly.

The lawmakers also urged the state Attorney General to take immediate legal action to determine the issue and compel the National Boundary Commission to demarcate the disputed area.

The lawmakers called for the rebuilding of the Adadama Police station and staff quarters vandalized during the crisis, while commending Governor Liyel Imoke for his prompt and proactive response in assisting the victims.

The lawmakers noted that the deployment of military personnel would bring permanent peace in the two border communities.

They also called on the National Emergency Management Agency and State Emergency Management Agency to provide urgently relief materials to the displaced persons in Adadama in order to meet the needs of the people of the community.
