Group Wants FG, Taraba Gov’t To End Killings In 30 Days Or…



Group under the auspices of Save Tiv Taraba movement has given the federal government and Taraba State government an ultimatum of 30 days to end the incessant killings in Taraba State particularly of the Tiv people or will be left with no option but engage in spiritual fight and also seek redress in court.

Addressing newsmen at the.weekend in Kaduna, founder of the group, Barrister Timothy Tor Kyuga said, the group is going to embark on a sustained movement if the killings continue unabated.

As a legal practitioner, he said that the group will ensure that justice is done in the Country.

Kyuga lamented that Tiv People have been killed in Taraba State with reckless abandon and government is doing nothing to save their lives,”The Governor have not said anything about the killings of Tiv”.

The Elders have refused to say the truth because they are being favoured by the government, he also averred.

He therefore tasked the government to arrest any body who have issued a provocative statement stressing that “Some Chairmen are thugs, and one of them was caught with dead bodies recently, the government should look into it for further investigation”.

Kyuga also urged the State government to visit the areas that have been destroyed, and to also condole with the Victims.

“The general Officer commanding (GOC) of 93 battalion should be removed immediately and replaced, otherwise the crisis may not stop”.

The Federal and State government should take appropriate measures to end the killings of Tiv in Taraba State, he said.

” there must be an end to the killings of Tiv people in Taraba State or we will be left with no option but to defend ourselves if the government fail to protect us.

“Every single person of group of persons who have issued provocative statements should be arrested by the DSS and interrogated”.
