He said “Although we are peaceful and civilized in Akwa Ibom state, the elasticity of our patience is not infinite. As it is said in science when the limit of elasticity is exhausted there must be rupture.“Cattle rearing is a noble trade, so is farming. Someone must not use his trade to infringe on another man’s trade moreso in his own land. We are not in animal kingdom where survival of the fittest is the order; we are in a society governed by the rule of law. The rights of our people must be respected”.He however sued for peace, calling on the youths of the community not to take laws into their hands and pledged the commitment of the state Government at ensuring that the perpetrators of the act were brought to book.“I am using this medium to call on the police, SSS and other security partners to ensure that those that perpetrated this dastardly act are apprehended and justice is served publicly. This is the only way the deceased family will have succour”, he said.
