Taraba Commissioner Flays Attack on Travellers by Acclaimed Tiv Militia

The Taraba State Commissioner for Cooperatives and Poverty Alleviation, Habu James Phillip, has described Monday’s attack on travellers along Wukari-Tsokundu road by acclaimed Tiv militia as highly condemnable and reprehensible.

Habu, who is the political leader of the Tiv in Taraba State, stated that those behind the attack are criminals and agents of destabilization who do not have the interest of the area at heart.

Three people, including a woman, were killed in the attack that occurred at about 5.00pm, while two other persons sustained serious injuries and are presently receiving treatment at the Federal University of Wukari Teaching Hospital, Wukari.

The commissioner, who expressed bitterness over the dastardly act, urged all the Tiv leaders in the area to fish out those behind the killings and hand them over to security agencies for prosecution.

He noted that the state Governor, Dr Agbu Kefas, is doing everything humanly possibly to unite all the tribes in the state in his determination to bring peace and development to the state, adding that all hands must be on deck to ensure the governor realizes his objective.

Habu however expressed disappointment over the failure of the President General of Tiv Cultural Association in the state, James Baka, for not condemning the killings and therefore called on him to resign his position.

According to him, “It is very disappointing that the President General of Tiv Cultural Association in Taraba State, James Baka, has remained silent over this highly condemnable incident and I demand that he should resign his position.

“When some Tiv travellers were attacked and killed by Ichen militia last month, Governor Kefas was the first to condemn the killings and called for the arrest and prosecution of the perpetrators. That is how a leader should act.”

He however appealed to all the conflicting tribes in the state to embrace peace and learn to live harmoniously particularly considering the efforts being made by the governor to unite the state through inclusiveness and even distribution of projectsTaraba Commissioner Flays Attack on Travellers by Acclaimed Tiv Militia
