Traditional Rulers held responsible for kidnapping - Cross River state government


Cross River state government holds traditional Rulers in Bakassi and Akpabuyo LGA of the state responsible for the kidnapping, that if they aren't released they will face consequences.

There has been an increase in the rate of kidnapping in these communities and Permanent Secretary, security services in Governor's office, Alfred Mboto declares an end has come to the silence on the matter that this case is under the jurisdiction of traditional rulers. The case should have ended unless they are being protected under their wings.

Mboto issues out an order at security meetings between government service commanders, traditional rulers and youths of the two LGA, he also order that they should release Nigeria Labour Congress Chairman Ben Ukpepi and Dominic Aqua Edem, former chairman of NDDC who were kidnapped and still in captivity.

However, the paramount ruler of Bakassi LGA blames the kidnapping on ceding of Bakassi territory without compensation of plans. Commissioner of police force CP sikiru sued for peace  but states anyone going against the law will be apprehended.
