Chairman of All Progressives Congress (APC) in Cross River, Mr Alphonsus Eba, has condemned the communal clash between Ijegu and Yabu communities in Yala Local Government Area of the state. 

Eba, in a statement issued on Sunday in Calabar by his Special Assistant on Media, Mr Egbara Emmanuel, urged the warring communities to sheath their swords and eschew violence. 

He said it was sad and regrettable that the two communities, which had co-existed for decades, could take up arms against each other.

 The APC chairman said that the clash over land matters was uncalled for, calling on leaders of both communities to resolve the issues through dialogue.

 He advised the warring communities to shun other acts capable of breaching the peace in the area.

“This is man’s inhumanity to man. It is disheartening that this kind of thing will be happening in our society,” he said. (NAN)
