- Nigerians continue to ask, why our powerful native African ancestral religion is not deployed against criminals who’s brazen acts prove they are aware of the impotency of inherited systems from colonizers
In the vicinity of the University of Uyo (UNIUYO) main campus in Akwa Ibom State, tragedy struck as the student community of Ekpri Nsukara mourned the brutal killing of a young lady. The victim’s decapitated body, missing its upper abdomen, was found concealed in a ‘Ghana – Must – Go’ bag near the Boys’ School entrance in the Anua area of Uyo.
The shocking discovery left witnesses in disbelief, unable to confirm if the deceased was a student due to the gruesome state of her remains.
Expressing profound dismay, Comrade Emmanuel Ekong, a UNIUYO student, recounted the grisly scene, highlighting the extent of the violence perpetrated against the victim. Similarly, Nseobong Idiong, another student, condemned the heinous act, emphasizing the brutality inflicted upon the young woman.
Demanding swift action, youth activist Comrade Ifiok Bassey urged Governor Umo to intervene and implore security agencies to address the escalating violence. Bassey cited previous incidents of similar nature, underscoring the urgent need for comprehensive measures to combat such atrocities.
Despite assurances from the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), SP Odiko MacDon, to investigate the matter thoroughly, concerns lingered among residents regarding the efficacy of law enforcement efforts. The community awaits justice for the victim, hopeful that the authorities will apprehend the perpetrators and bring them to account.
As insecurity continue to engulf the land, many Nigerians continue to ask, why the apprehension in deploying our native ancestral spirituality as the alternative form of justice against criminals who’s aborminable acts show that they have no fear under current sytems inherited from colonizers
