Iyadim Condemns Killing of Youth in Bakassi, Calls For Calm

Following a  clash which occurred yesterday between motor bike riders and a security outfit that resulted in death of a youth in Ekpri Ikang, Chairman of Bakassi Local Government Area, Hon. Iyadim Amboni Iyadim, has assured the youths that the perpetrator of the dastardly act will be made to face necessary sanctions.

Addressing news men at the Council Secretariat, Ikot Effiom yesterday, the chairman  disclosed that, "I have summoned the area commander of the  outfit and he assured me that the two operatives involved in the act had been apprehended and will soon  face in-house summery trial before being charged  to court.

"In fact, as we speak, the officer and his accomplice have been arrested and will be charged to court next week," he said.

Accoding to Iyadim, "We cannot continue to waste the precious lives of our youths because of selfish interest. It is high time we corrected  these  ills by dismantling unnecessary road blocks to check the alarming rate of extortion associated by the enforcement agencies."

While urging the youths not to take laws into their hands, he called on the residents to go about their lawful business as other security agencies have been directed to ensure the protection of lives and property.

"On our part, we shall initiate a strategy to check security and  soon, we will constitute a vigilante group that will feed us with intelligence reports  to keep the area safe and secure."

Iyadim also expressed his condolences to the family and colleagues of the deceased over the lose, assuring that such an incident will not repeat itself under his watch.
