OVONOM CULT CRISIS:CRSG CALLS FOR CALM

The attention of the Cross River State Government has been drawn to  the unfortunate alleged Cult related crisis that broke out early morning of Saturday,February 15,2020 in Ovonom Community in Obubra Local Government Area of the State,in which one life was reportly lost,resulting in mass protest by some Women in the area.

Government hereby condemn in strong terms,this alleged killing and the reprisal attacks that followed by some irate youth in the Community thus resulting in total breakdown of law and order in the area

Government wishes to state unequivocally that no individual or group has power to go into jungle justice but should rather report any untoward action,activity or behaviour to relevant government agencies  that are mandated by law to handle such matters in a manner that does not disturb public peace

Government further urges all parties in this aviodable crisis,to sheathe their swords to allow unfettered access to security angencies to investigate the matter with a view to resolving the impasse and restore sustainable peace to the Community

Finally,Government enjoins all residents of the area to go about their lawful businesses without fear,as Government is fully on top of the situation to unravel the cause of this sad incident.
