Lives Lost, Properties Destroyed In Taraba Conflict

In a recent development, the Taraba State Police Command has officially verified that two individuals lost their lives during the escalated conflict in Karim-Lamido Local Government Area. Additionally, the command has reported that the rampage carried out by the youth resulted in the destruction of at least five villages.

Providing insights into the situation, the spokesman for the Taraba state command of the Nigerian police, Abdullahi Usman, described the ongoing turmoil in the region as a form of “guerrilla warfare.”

What is not stated at this time is the cause of this conflict; however, Taraba State, known for its plurality of ethnic groups, has a history of sectarian violence between groups.
