According to Allen,Okrika youths were yesterday attacked by youths from Eleme in Rivers state.He wrote…
‘It’s so saddened that despite the peaceful understanding by both communities in recent years some scrupulous element from Eleme will carry out such an act that is tantamount to breach of peace.
Innocent Okrika youths were ambushed and brutally attacked while on their daily routine of survival in the bush.
In a quick response to the attack,seven of the assailants where apprehend and were handed over to the Okrika divisional Police Headquarters without any touch or injury on them by brave Okrika youths.
We appeal to the Government,Chiefs and Elders of our loving Eleme neighbours to caution their youths from any further act that could breach the peace we both enjoy for the past 17 years as brothers and friends.
The Okrika man is a man of peace
A man of great love and friendship
For his neighbours and even his foes.
We do not need any communal war again with our neighbours that will make them desert their communities like ghost town. For we are all brothers and sisters.
By this notice we advice all Sons and Daughters of Wakirike-Bese to be security concious if applying Eleme Okrika Rd,Ogu Bolo and Wakama or rather should follow through the waterways.
#PEACE BETWEEN ELEME AND OKRIKA
