Find a spot on the beach to sit and drink in the moon, stare into the horizon, or gaze at the beauty and listen to the silent sounds of the sands, waters and perfect waves. The magnificence engorges you with an exquisite feeling of harmony that you most certainly will not get within the confines of your home or by taking a pill.

At this beach, no one is there to ogle at you or judge you. You have the freedom to do what you want without a strange or large audience.

It is even much more fun when you go with a friend or in a group, you can have an intimate moment with a love, make a bonfire, throw sands at each other, have a late picnic or just do whatever you want…the night lets you own the beach.

Free Pass

Usually, you are charged at the entrance of the beach and also for parking if you arrive in a car. The tariffs are pretty stiff and so you need to plan for it. There is ample parking space next to the beach for free but you will have to get there on time to secure a slot.

While going to Eket beach at night has it perks, it is important to note that after midnight, as with any place in the world, you stand a greater chance of being harassed by idle people than by the beach staff as you never know who or what could be lurking in the shadows. It is always safer to go in a group.

CAN Caution MURIC Over Kidnapping For Christ Statement



Joseph Hayab, the Chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria (Northern Region), has cautioned the Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) over statements made by its director, Ishaq Akintola.

Akintola had associated the Christ to abduction and recent the news of the conversion of 9 Kano children who were reunited with their parents after 5 years.

He was quoted to have said: “kidnapping for Christ is disgusting, nauseating, wicked and reprehensible. Kidnappers have taken over the house of God. The phenomenon of kidnapping for Christ has now rented the air. We are shocked to our marrows.”

Reacting to Akintola, Hayab described his comment as “irresponsible, derogatory and provocative,” adding that there is nothing like kidnapping for Christ.

Hayab said:

“Criminals abound in everywhere and in every religion, for MURIC to say a crime was perpetrated for Christ, is sheer mischief aimed at provoking Christians,” he said.

“How could rational, sane and educated person, associate the action of criminals to a religion? There are many instances where Christian girls were abducted, forcefully converted to Islam and married off by criminals in Northern Nigeria. In some of these cases, the police either refused to act, or turned blind eyes.

“Will it be right to accused all Muslims for the action of such criminals? The answer is no.

“A particular group which belongs to a particular religious group has always been alleged to be responsible for the rampant kidnappings and banditry across the country, especially in the north, will it be right to say that they are committing the crime to promote their tribe or religion?

“We also have the case of Leah Sharibu who is still being held by Boko Haram insurgents for refusing to denounce her Christian faith and convert to Islam. No Christian has associated Muslims with such criminal acts.

“If we have any witness against the culprits behind the abduction, we will join hands with the people of Kano to testify against him or them in court.

“There is nothing like kidnapping for Christ. This evil kidnapper or child trafficker, knowing that he did not carry away the children for religion gave them new tribal names, MURIC should note.

“CAN northern states, therefore, condemned anybody carrying peoples children away and supports security agencies to investigate the matter and prosecute the culprits. Abduction of children is a criminal offence. MURIC can call whoever is found doing that whatever name they like, but don’t associate criminality with Christ.”
