The women, who marched round Abonnema town, warned that military personnel should not be deployed in the area in the governorship and state Assembly elections billed for March 9.

The women appealed to the King of Abonnema to help restore peace back to the town, stressing that “Abonnema used to be a peaceful community.” They enjoined the king to caution the ruthless display of “federal might” by some members of the community.

“We plead with you to talk to our sons who are today enjoying the federal might to use it for the betterment of their community. Some other persons have also held those positions; they used it to better their LGAs. We are pleading: We expect them to use whatever they enjoy today to better our lives.”
