Governor Bassey Otu of Cross River State has imposed a dusk-to-dawn curfew in four communities to forestall further loss of lives and property and to enable security agencies to deal decisively with the situation.

The affected communities, Ugaga, Igbekurekor Benekaba, and Ujama, have been rocked by bloodletting in recent times.

Last week, the lingering mistrust between the Tiv people of Benue State and the Yache community in Yala LGA resulted in the deaths of seven people and the burning of 15 houses, with several people injured.
