BREAKING: Four Killed, Scores Injured As Herdsmen Attack Farmers In Taraba


“It was when we were running to safety that we discovered that four of our relations were already dead. They had killed them earlier before proceeding to attack us. “It’s only because of God that some of us are alive to tell our story,” he narrated. A youth leader in the area, Mr. Titus Gowon, told journalists that the attackers killed four Tiv people on their farm along Dogon Ruwa Road while many others sustained bullet and matchet wounds. He blamed the extent of the attack on the failure of the police to rescue the situation. “The Divisional Police Officer in charge of Gassol has come around, but he refused to go to the scene of the attack on the account that there was no fuel in their vehicles,” he said. The village head of Kwararafa, Alh. Ibrahim Isah, denied the allegations that he had sold out the land belonging to Tiv people in the area to herdsmen. He, however, said he was aware of the misunderstanding between Fulani and some Tiv farmers in the area. “I am not sure of the casualty figures because I am not around as we speak,” he said.
