Boki Oil Palm Estate In Cross River Turns Into A War Zone As Youths Fight

 Boki oil palm estate in Cross River state, with over 400 plots, has turned into a war zone over what can be best described as `political influence of the god fathers’. Here are photos of some of the pellets that were littered after some youths engaged themselves in a gun duel over the ongoing crisis in the Boki oil palm estate.

According to report by George Odok, the youths are now operating from two rival groups, under the influence of some politicians, alleged to have gotten the governors nod to control the estate.

Crisis renewed again in the area when some youths loyal to Ayade’s appointee manned a road block at Bafin village to prevent youths from Oku village in accessing the popular `Okundi Market’ to sell their farm produce.

As a result of the clash, the youths, who have been turned against each other by political actors opened fire against themselves, but eye-witness reported that none of the youths was hurt because they have all fortified themselves diabolically with charms.

It would be recalled that one Bukie Etta was shot dead two months ago by some un-identified gunmen during the clash that led to the destruction of houses and other valuables in Oku-Bushuyu.

A majority of workers in the state, mostly from other LGA’s have since fled the area over consistent gun shots and extortion of monies from them.
