Uyio Ikpaisong Ibibio condemns assassination of Okon Uwah

Uyio Ikpaisong Ibibio condemns assassination of Okon Uwah

It is with sadness that the Supreme Council of Ibibio Traditional Rulers, Uyio Ikpaisong Ibibio-in-Council, receives the shocking news of the assassination of the former Deputy Speaker of Akwa Ibom State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. (Obong) Okon Joseph Uwah on Wednesday, March 18, 2015.

The ugly incident according to information available to us, took place in Nkek village, Ukanafun Local government area.

Uyio Ikpaisong-in-Council had on June 17, 2014, issued a Press Statement warning all Akwa Ibom politicians to play the game by its rules and avoid violence as “no good thinking individual or group of individuals in the state would love to witness another shedding of innocent blood as it was in 2011, where several innocent citizens of the state were assassinated including HRM Edidem Robert James Obot, the former Paramount Ruler of Nsit Ubium LGA.”

UYIO IKPAISONG IBIBIO deprecates and condemns the assassination in very strong terms and calls on the security agencies in the state to ensure that the perpetrators do not escape the wrath of the law no matter who is involved, while we commiserate with the family of the deceased and people of the state over this great loss.
