25 killed in fresh attack in Taraba

At least 25 people have been killed in fresh attacks by suspected herdsmen in Jandeikyula village of Wukari Local Government Area of Taraba State.

Witnesses told TheCable that the suspects stormed the village around 7pm on Wednesday; many houses were set ablaze and several people were injured.

A resident, Victor, said that the over 200 attackers took the villagers unawares.

Adi Grace, chairman of the local government council, confirmed the attack to reporters but said he could not give casualty figures.

“Many people were killed in the attack. As I am speaking with you now, I don’t have the casualty figures, until when I am back from the village because I am on my way there now,” he said.

Commenting on the attack, Luka Agbo, former chairman of the Wukari Youths of Vision, said: “It is true that Jandeikyula village was attacked in the night and, from the reports we are getting, over 30 people were killed.

“The series of attacks in the state now make us live in fear because we can no longer go to bed with our two eyes closed.”

David Misal, spokesman of the police in the state, also confirmed the attack but could not give details.

“We are aware that an attack took place yesterday at Jandeikyula village in Wukari local government,” he said.

“As for the number of casualties, the information available to the command is still very sketchy. I hope to get back to you as soon as the actual details of the attack get to my desk.”

Taraba, lile Benue and Plateau, is one of the states affected by clashes between farmers and herdsmen.

The can only hit and run, but can never exist on your God given native land, can never build on your God given native land, can never win the war. God given victory is the natives’ under the natives Disintegrated Republics which secures the natives existence and future in 21st century world which must be defended with the Sword in this climax of the ongoing Revolution War of the natives. Strike point number one are the enemy’s brainwashed terrorism mercenaries nickname military, police etc- they are behind the attacks and killings of this territory natives in disguise as so-called herdsmen etc- Slaughter them on your God given native land, Burn Down their barracks, vehicles etc., take everything in their possession- arms etc. The enemy has lost the war- march on them to full conquest. Do not move an inch backward on your God given native land. Only the Sword decides. God Is With Us!!!
