Gunmen Wednesday attacked and killed two people in Yongogba village in
Takum local government area of Taraba State.

A local resident said the attackers who invaded the village from Takum
burnt the entire village and looted valuable property.

The resident who craved anonymity, said the attackers riding on
motorcycles and two Toyota Hilux, invaded the village in the early
hours of the morning, killing two people, with scores still missing.

He explained that the attackers who came through TY Danjuma farm
killed two people who were already in their farms before proceeding to
burn the entire village.

According to ThisDay, the eyewitness who said the casualty figure
might be higher as many people were already in the farm along the
route the attackers came called on Governor Darius Ishaku who had said
he had the capacity to end the killings in Taraba to do so

“I was on my way to the farm when I sighted two Toyota Hilux vans and
motorcycles advancing towards our village.

“I couldn’t call the people back home because of the poor network.

“Many people are still missing and I am sure many of those missing
might have been killed by the attackers who came in their numbers.

“Our governor who recently kicked against a commission of inquiry into
the crisis said he has the ability to solve the problem, so I want to
plead with him to end these killings,” the witness stated.
