Taraba boils as gunmen attack, kill many, burn houses


Residents of Taraba State were, over the weekend, thrown into frenzy as militants attacked Fulani communities, killing several and living many more injured in Sardauna Local Government Area.

Elombah.com is also reliably informed that the attackers burnt down several houses and killed several livestock including cows.

The motive behind the attacks is yet to be determined but a resident of one of the affected villages, Mallam Bello Haruna, spoke to Daily Trust.

He said that several Mambilla youths led by militiamen  invaded his village and  shot several persons.

He said the attackers also set ablaze all the houses in the village and killed many cows, adding that he managed to escape along with his two children and wife.

“The attack was unprovoked as we did not have any dispute with them,” Haruna said.

It was also gathered that the militiamen attempted to launch an attack on Ngouroge town but for the timely arrival of a detachment of soldiers.
