Fulani Men Strike Again, Kill Taraba Traditional Ruler
The dust of the herdsmen killings in Benue is yet to settle but some Fulani armed men have decided to rekindle bad memories.
This time, they invaded Karmen community in Ibi local government area of Taraba State and snuffed life out of a local traditional ruler.
The caretaker chairman of Ibi local government council, Bala Bako, confirmed the attack in Jalingo.
Bako said the Fulani gunmen struck when the people of the community gathered for a security meeting.
“We have some security challenges in Ibi and we have been making efforts to ensure that ethnic groups in our domain accommodate and live in peace with one another.
“The Chief of Ibi also set up a committee which has been meeting to find solution to the security challenges, and it was in one of the meetings that the Fulani gunmen attacked and killed the traditional ruler.
“They gathered and were waiting for us for the security meeting when suddenly armed Fulani men emerged and started shooting. The local chief was killed during the attack, using Fulani sticks, by the attackers,” he said.
The Caretaker Chairman said he mobilised security men who went and evacuated the corpse.
One person was arrested in connection with the killing and investigation into the attack has begun.
