Daily Trust - - INSIDE POLITICS - From Dick­son S. Adama, Uyo

Un­known hood­lums have set ablaze a part of Mk­pat Enin Lo­cal Gov­ern­ment Coun­cil sec­re­tar­iat in Akwa Ibom State, de­stroy­ing prop­er­ties worth mil­lions of naira.

Daily Trust gath­ered that the in­ci­dent was a fallout of the many griev­ances of the peo­ple to­wards the coun­cil’s ad­min­is­tra­tors and other po­lit­i­cal dif­fer­ences.

Re­act­ing to the in­ci­dent, the com­mis­sioner of Ru­ral De­vel­op­ment, Ekong Samp­son, called on the law en­force­ment agen­cies to in­ves­ti­gate the mat­ter and bring the per­pe­tra­tors to book.

Samp­son, who was also the for­mer chair­man of Mk­pat Enin Coun­cil, said vi­o­lence can­not solve prob­lems and po­lit­i­cal mis­un­der­stand­ings.
