The Unwarranted And Barbaric Attack I Suffered In The Hands Of Armed Political Thugs And Hoodlums At Kakum, The Hometown Of Governor Ben Ayade, Inadvertently Kept Me Away BY DAVE IMBUA


Good morning, dear friends and fellow citizens. The unwarranted and barbaric attack I suffered in the hands of armed political thugs and hoodlums at Kakum, the hometown of Governor Ben Ayade, inadvertently kept me away from this and other social media platforms at a most crucial and critical moment in our political history.

As many of you are already aware, our only offence that provoked the physical and psychological brutalization on that Wednesday, February 22, 2023, was that we drove through Kakum enroute from Calabar to Bendi despite the fact that we belong to a political camp that was not supporting the senatorial ambition of HE, Ben Ayade.

I appreciate the concern, anxiety and difficulty with which relatives and friends tried to reach out to me when I was criminally dispossessed of all my gadgets during the attack. I am happy to be back here. I thank God who saved the life of my nephew – John Atiang – who was inhumanly manhandled by our attackers. For sure, it is too late for anyone to intimidate me into submission to an idea that is at variance with my personal conviction.

We will continue to ask the right questions and to demand the fair treatment of our people. Like my respected elder brother, Prof. Joe Ushie, will always tell us, we cannot plant our corn in the bedroom for fear of the baboon. Let’s keep believing in ourselves and nation, for a new Nigeria is possible! Thank you, once again, and happy weekend.
