Militia Kill, Behead Two Farmers in Taraba

Suspected armed militia have over the weekend killed and beheaded two farmers in Wukari local government of Taraba State sparking fears of further bloodshed.

Reports indicated that the armed militia crossed to Wukari from Benue State and carried out the dastardly act on the two victims who were working on their farm.

Chairman of Wukari Local Government Area, Mr. Adigrace Daniel, who confirmed the incident, told Daily Trust that before the renewed killing, the area was enjoying relative peace.

He gave the names of the victims as Simon Bala and Timothy Awe, adding that the killing was a strong signal that all was not well in the area.

The spokesman of the police in Taraba state, DSP David Misal also confirmed the incident but said no arrest was made.

It would be recalled that three laborers from Jigawa State were reportedly killed and beheaded by unknown gunmen at a farm in Yalwan Tau in Jalingo Local Government Area in November last year.

The Newshawk recalls that Tiv and Jukun ethnic settings have been launching attacks and counter-attacks in the last one-year leading to loss of lives and properties.
