The Chairman, Vice Chair and councilors have all ran away from Bakassi, they have relocated to Calabar because of kidnapping. We cannot see them. They are not attaining to us. We appeal to you to return peace to us. We want our leaders to stay with us to enable us tackle our problems”.

Otu further decried the high level of insecurity in Bakassi and called on Sen Onor to step in if elected governor. “The high level of insecurity in Bakassi is caused by joblessness of the youths. We hardly sleep with our two eyes closed. A lot of our youths have relocated to Calabar”.
