Gov Ishaku Condemns Killing Of CRC Pastor, Wife



Governor of Taraba State,  Darius Ishaku has condemned the killing of  the pastor of CRC-N in charge of Mararaba, Rev. Emmanuel Bileya who was  killed on Monday by unknown gunmen.
In a statement made available to journalists by the senior special assistant on Media and Publicity to the Governor, Mr. Bala Dan Habu in Jalingo said the governor regretted the ceaseless killings in the southern zone of the state.
“The governor received with shock news of the dastardly murder of Emmanuel Bileya, a pastor of the CRC-N Church, Mararaba, Donga LGA, and his wife, Juliana”, he said.
Bala said both the pastor and his wife  were reportedly attacked by militia men and killed while working on their farm in Mararaba.
“Governor Ishaku condemned the killings as wicked and inhuman. He said killings of this nature had happened too often recently in Southern  Taraba communities and described this situation as unhelpful to the  on-going efforts of government to achieve lasting peace among  communities in the area.
