By Elijah Ugani

The youths of Obudu took the street to protest the unjustly killing of an innocent fifteen years boy by the members of the National Youth Council of Nigeria NYCN, who was reported by his father on the guise of having stolen his ten thousand naira.

The youths barricaded Ogoja road the major road in Obudu the late hours of Saturday, 7th October, 2020 to register their displeasure over the killing of the innocent boy.

According to our source, Mr. George Abetianbe “The whole Streets of Ogoja Road in obudu was filled with young men and women today protesting the unlawful killing of a young boy carried out by the Obudu youth council alleged to have stolen from the father the sum of ten thousand naira, and the father as a way of reprimand, handed over the boy to the Obudu youth council to take disciplinary measures which resulted to death after incessant beatings and manhandling.

“Presently this has caused tension as boys are every where looking for members of the youth council. Some have began destroying properties suspected to belong to members of the youth council.

“Just like the #EndSARS degenerated to something else in Lagos, Calabar, Abakeliki and so forth, this may follow the same path seeing many aggrieved already.

“I have also gathered that two persons are dead already as they engaged in physical confrontation with the youth council at their hide outs”

Fidelis Ishoja took to his verified Facebook page, @Fioe Castro to express his grief over the burning of their house when they are not connected to the youth council.

His words “This act is barbaric, how on earth will you set our innocent house ablaze when we neither know or have anything to do with Obudu Youth Council. God will never forgive anybody involved in this act”
