Video Of How Residents flee communities in Cross River state following communal clashes,
There is reportedly a communal clash going on between the people of Iyametet and Ababene in Cross River, causing residents to flee the communities in a hurry for fear of their lives. More than 500 people are reported by Paul Ifere to have fled their homes with the hopes of getting to safety. A video recorded by a Cross River indigene travelling between both communities, shows residents with a few properties carried on their heads, walking away from the troubled communities to get to a more peaceful location.
Reacting to the uprising, a resident of Calabar wrote;
“The war is between Iyametet and Ababene. My colleague’s old mother is trapped in Ababene as she was abandoned by fleeing family members. The son is here crying.”
