|Hausa Men Attack Villagers In Akwa Ibom Over Generator (graphic Photos) by BOX555: 9:12pm On Jan 11|
The peaceful community of Itiam Etoi in Uyo Local Government was on Tuesday night thrown into chaos when a number of Hausa men attacked them, leaving a number of them wounded.
According to a source at the scene of the incident, who preferred anonymity, “the attacks began at about 10 pm when some people had slept. It would have been worse if there were many people on the street. They started cutting anybody they met on their way with machetes. Some of them carried iron rods and other forms of weapons with which they beat and wound people. They also destroyed the properties of people selling shops in the area”.
Sources say the incident was caused by a case of a stolen generator which was sold to one of the Hausa men. When the owner of the generator found out that the generator was sold to the scrap collectors, he apprehended them and the case was thought to have been settled until last night.
Sources say the problem started when the man who bought the generator accused his Hausa kinsman of selling him out by reporting him to the owner of the generator.They began to fight. An attempt by an Ibibio man in the area to separate the fight led to one of the fighting parties insinuating that the Ibibio man sided with his brother to beat him. He then went to his people to tell his brothers, who reinforced and went with him to attack anyone they met on the street.
One of the victims, Mr. Itoro, said “I was sitting in front of our house when I saw them running with machetes towards me. But because I didn’t have any problem with anyone I was not afraid, only for them to cut me in the face and continued to run on”.
