Abuja - Local leaders appealed for more security amid deadly clashes between the Fulani and Tarok ethnic groups in Taraba State.
Four people have died and several injured while scores have been displaced.
Chairman of Karim-Lamido Local Government, Simeon Mohammed, said there was insufficient security personnel to curtail the crisis.
“I have briefed the Commissioner of Police and he has promised to take relevant measure,” he said.
A long-existing upheaval between the Fulani grazers and the Tarok ethnic group is said to have resulted in the problems on Saturday.
A resident of the area, Usman Mana, blamed lack of adequate security personnel saying this paved way for the attackers to have easy access to the community.
“The unfortunate thing is that as at the time people were attacked, it was only three police men that were on ground,” he said.
