Hoodlums burn houses, shops, vehicles in A’Ibom community

Youths believed to be hoodlums have burnt several houses and shops at Nnung Oku Ekanem, at Awa community, the hometown of the Akwa Ibom State Governor, Udom Emmanuel.

Hoodlums said to be from Afaha Ubium village were having a field day in the neighbouring village, Nnung Oku Ekanem, setting houses and shops in the area ablaze as well as destroying property worth millions of naira.
