Daily Trust - - NEWS - From Itodo Daniel Sule, Jalingo

Rel­a­tive peace has re­turned to Jibu Ward of Wukari LGA of Taraba State fol­low­ing an at­tack on the com­mu­nity Tues­day morn­ing which led to the death of about 10 per­sons ac­cord­ing to the po­lice. Taraba po­lice spokesman, ASP Joseph Kwaji, said there is rel­a­tive peace in the area now fol­low­ing the de­ploy­ment of se­cu­rity per­son­nel.

“As I speak with you, we have a de­tach­ment of con­ven­tional po­lice­men, mo­bile po­lice­men and the army on in­ten­sive pa­trol in the area. There is rel­a­tive peace in the area now”, he said.

Kwaji said no ar­rest has so far been made in con­nec­tion with the at­tack, adding that the at­tack­ers fled the area be­fore the ar­rival of se­cu­rity per­son­nel. He called on mem­bers of the pub­lic to give the po­lice use­ful in­for­ma­tion that would lead the preven­tion of such at­tacks, adding that people should learn to chan­nel their grievances to the ap­pro­pri­ate au­thor­i­ties for re­dress in­stead of tak­ing laws into their hands.
