President Muhammadu Buhari has expressed concern over reports of violence in four communities in Biase Local Government Area of Cross River State.
The violence has reportedly resulted in the loss of lives, injuries and displacement of villagers.
In a statement made available to newsmen by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, Buhari called for calm and restoration of peace in the affected communities bordering Abia State.
The President urged the people of the areas to allow law and order to prevail.
“Our communities must be ready to live together in peace since no development can take place in an atmosphere of recurring violence,” he said.
Buhari, who commended the state government for the steps taken so far towards bringing peace to the areas, also lauded the State Police Command for speedily mobilizing its personnel to the affected communities to contain the crisis.
He urged all stakeholders to cooperate and ensure that lasting peace returned to the affected areas.
