Chairman, Council of Chiefs in Cross River State and paramount ruler of Bakassi Local Government Area of the state, Etinyin Etim Edet, has said he would support Bakassi people with prayers to achieve victory, if they chose to declare war on Nigeria over the Federal Government’s refusal to appeal against the International Court of Justice, ICJ, judgment that ceded their land to Cameroun.
Etinyin Edet, yesterday, on a phone-in radio programme on Nigeria Info 99.3 fm in Lagos, said he believed that against all odds, God will intervene in the Bakassi matter and save his people. This came on the heels of a call by the Senate to the Presidency to appeal against the October 10, 2012, ICJ judgment.
The paramount ruler said that the Federal and Cross River State Governments, had promised to resettle and compensate the displaced people, “but up till date, nothing has happened. Our people are facing all kinds of problem.”
