Boundary-Clash: Abia community seeks permanent solution
ISU Communities in Arochukwu Local Government of Abia State displaced as a result of border clashes with neighbouring Biase Communities in Cross River State have asked Abia State and the Federal Government to quickly find a permanent solution to the lingering boundary dispute that often leads to deaths, injuries and displacements by mandating the National Boundary Commission (NBC) to do its statutory duty without further delay.
President General of Isu Development Union, Elder Felix Okoro, who made the call at the distribution of relief materials by the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) in Umuahia, said though relief materials were appropriate and appreciated, they want a permanent solution to the boundary skirmishes.
The House of Assembly member for Arochukwu Constituency, Dr Mike Ukoha said the relief materials are products of synergy between the state legislature and the Executive, disclosing that based on his interaction with his Cross River State counterpart, both states and the warring communities were disposed to welcoming the NBC and other peace initiatives.
Secretary to the State Government, Abia State, Mr. Chris Ezem, who flagged off the relief materials distribution to Isu Communities, said the state government would soon visit the community with relief package.
