North Abaco, Bahamas — Students of Abaco Central High School are rioting following a cultural war in the north. The school is situated in the heart of Prime Minsiter Hubert Ingraham’s constituency. The riot broke out between a group of Haitian and Bahamian students early today.
A source on the ground in Abaco tells us, “From the looks of it, this is a turf war. Apparently, Haitian students were touting for a long time that as long as Ingraham is in power they could do what they wish. Further, many of them are riding on their laurels of their parents being brought from Haiti specifically to vote for Ingraham.
“What many don’t know is that the police is feverishly trying to track a cache of fire arms believed to be stored in the Mudd [The Papa Doc Abaco’s Haitian community ].
“We know that the group is headed by a ZOE POUND leader known as ‘Bin Laden‘ Pinder. A coup could be looming on this northern Bahamas island, and we are urging the Government to act quickly,” the source said.
