At least 24 people have been reportedly killed and many others missing in an ongoing violent clash between Tivs and Fulanis in Sabon Gidan village of Dan Anacha town, Taraba State.
Sources from the area said the crisis started on Saturday when two corpses of Fulanis were found killed in a bush. This triggered their kingpins carrying out reprisal attacks on Tivs.
” I counted about 20 corpses who were believed to have been killed early hours of today, Sunday,” a resident of the area told Premium Times.
“Many people including women and children are nowhere to be found,” the source added.
When contacted, the Taraba police spokesperson, David Misal, confirmed the clash, saying more operatives have been drafted to the area to restore peace and order.
He said the police could not yet ascertain the casualty figure.
