11 Killed In Community Clash In Taraba

By Iro Dan Fulani

At least 11 are feared to have been killed in a community clash in Ibi, Taraba State, after a peace agreement recently signed collapsed.

Chairman of Ibi local government council, Isiyaka Adamu, confirmed the number of deaths, saying several others were injured.

“For now 11 people were killed while several others sustained injuries of bullet wounds, We are now planning to transfer those with serious degree of injuries to the state capital,” he said.






     

     

    The spokesman for the state police command, Joseph Kwaji, also confirmed the incident but failed to give details about clash.

    He said that 14 persons have already been arrested in connection with the crisis and that two AK47 riffles have been recovered.

    It was gathered that the latest crisis was precipitated by the alleged shooting of a Hausa man by some Jukun natives along Wukari road.

    Already, a 24-hour curfew has been imposed on Ibi, as soldiers and anti-riot police are on patrol to restore peace and order to the area.
