Communal crisis: Cross River community begs Ebonyi neighbour to reopen roads, market

The indigenes Adamma of Abi local government area of Cross River have  appealed to their neighbour in Ndiagu-Amagu in Ikwo local government area in Ebonyi state to reopen roads linking them as well as the markets  for easy movement and business transaction. South East Trust gathered that the roads and the popular Nwangagbo market were closed since 2016 when crisis erupted between the communities.

The President of  the Adamma Youth Association,  Mr. Sunday Eni made this appeal during a joint sensitization campaign on the need for peaceful co-existence between members of the two communities. The meeting was held at St. Francis Catholic Church in Ochiayim Amagu in Ikwo local government of Ebonyi state under the auspices of Cross River-Ebonyi Youth Development Movement.

Mr. Eni explained that both communities have lost businesses worth billions of naira especially in agriculture.

Since we signed and called for reopening of the transit routes, I will beg that you people should abide and implement the agreement. “Because as I speak the Ebebeye Road  and the popular Nwangagbo market, which we traverse and trade together are yet to be opened by Ochiayim Amagu. “Therefore, on behalf of my people as the youth leader, l appeal to you (Ochiayim Amagu) to do so. We cannot continue to live in fear because peace has finally returned. “Again, we have lost so much essentially in the area of agriculture since this crisis started,” he explained. In his address the President of Cross River-Ebonyi Youth Peace Development Movement, Barr. Paschal Nnaji Nwenyi, assured them of his readiness to bring permanent peace to the area. “We are committed and totally committed to end this crisis. I want to assure you we are not going back on our resolutions reached at Calabar, we are going to form a villigante in each village that is affected in this crisis.

“Their duty is to supervise, monitor and report any person or group that tries to thwart our communiqué,” he said. Our correspondent who visited the two communities on Thursday observed that  normalcy has returned in the area.

The border was closed to stem the crises. Peaceful coexistence of both communities is win win for all.
Some of you viewers want escalation of the crises to melting point. But no, is not going to happen. They are brothers.

Lol, this sounds like Ghana begging Nigeria to reopen border grin grin
All the same, I'm happy that the two communities are eager to ensure they live in peace and harmony, and I pray that absolute peace returns to the area.

For those that always talk nonsense out of envy anytime the two regions of SE and SS are tagged together, this is for you. Now, you can understand why we are United and tend to do things together. Aside the fake boundaries the abo.kis drawn after the Biafran war, nothing really differentiates the areas. You can literally walk from Egbema in Imo state to Egbema and other places in Rivers State. The same applies to Abia and Akwa Ibom, Ebonyi and Cross River etc, even Delta and Anambra, right now many people live in Asaba (Delta State SS) and work in Onitsha (Anambra State SE).

Aside that, the areas are 99% Christians, share similar world view, culture and physical features. So, tell me how you can possibly have two different countries with all these? It is literally and practically impossible.

By the time Nigeria eventually breaks up, the two areas will certainly form one country but I see them having a confederation.
