3,000 displaced as Busi communities clash in Cross River

01 August 2016, 07:24

Abuja - Over 3,000 people have been displaced following a communal conflict in the Obanliku LGA of Cross River State.

According to Vanguard, five Busi communities, namely Busi 1, 2, 3, 5 and 6, joined forces to attack Busi 4, causing widespread panic over an alleged dispute regarding land.

Francis Obi, a youth leader within the community, confirmed the attack, claiming that the area was invaded without warning on Friday evening.

“We were preparing to go to bed when all of a sudden, we started hearing gunshots, which caused panic in the community as our people started running and those who could not run fast enough were killed and our houses set ablaze,” he said.

The Director General of Cross River State Emergency Management Agency (SEMA), has since attributed the clash to a lack of patience and understanding on the part of community members who seek immediate gratification for their causes, Punch reports.
