The Minister for Niger Delta Affairs, Pastor Usani Usani, has said he’s ashamed of his state and hometown in particular over the communal conflicts in the state.
In a report by Daily Trust, he decried the perennial communal conflicts in many parts of Cross River Central senatorial district saying it is not only sad but shameful
“I am ashamed of these developments in my locality at a time we are expected to show optimum understanding and common working relations,” Usani said.
‘I hereby decry insinuations of political underpinnings to those irresponsible acts because ascribing political notions to acts of barbarism is an attempt to down play criminality which ought to be dealt with decisively,’ the minister said.
For nearly a month now Inyima/Onyadama, Nko/Mkpani, Nkum/Mgbegede communities have been at war over a dispute, which has resulted in killing, maiming and destroying property despite the intervention by security agencies.
