Youths disrupt Bakassi boundary demarcation

Angry Bakassi youths on Wednesday demonstrated against the demarcation of the maritime boundary between Nigeria and Cameroon in respect of the ceded Bakassi Peninsular. Members of the Joint Technical team comprising United Nations, Nigerian and Cameroonian officials on Wednesday paid a courtesy visit on the Chairman of Bakassi Local Government Area, Dr. Ekpo Bassey, in Ikang, to intimate him of their mission. But the demonstrators who carried placards with descriptions including ‘United Nations leave Bakassi’, ‘Bakassians are Nigerians and not Cameroonians’, ‘Bakassi has the inalienable right to self determination’, prevented the team from moving to the Peninsular for the exercise.
