There's no day without robbery at Ebuka Ebuka. 'Please help us tell the government to come to our rescue. Nobody helps us at Ebuka Ebuka to evacuate our waste. Nobody helps us to patch the or fix the potholes on our roads. And there's no security presence here. We are allowed to die rot.

It seems the over one month absence of His Excellency the Governor of Cross River State from the state is manifesting through the increment in criminal activities. Efio-Ita Nyok
