Fresh attacks: Four dead hours after Gov raises alarm in Taraba

Barely ten hours after Taraba state governor Darius Ishaku raised an alarm over an impending attack on the state, gunmen last night attacked and killed four persons in Ngutswen village of Gassol local government area of the state.

Narrating the incident, Mr. Tyav Ngutswen who is the surviving eldest person in the village, said that the heavily armed attackers numbering over twenty stormed the village around 10:00 pm and opened fire, killing four persons as they scampered for safety.

Ngutswen said that over ten persons have been killed by herdsmen since the beginning of year, but that the new incident started when cattle ate yams harvested and kept in a village house, for which herdsmen were made to pay compensation.
