Abuja - An unspecified number of people have been killed in Wukari Local Government Council of Taraba State following a clash between farmers and grazers.
President of National Association of Wapan Students, Tsokwa Addati Ajiduku, said it was not possible to give the number that was killed.
“It is not possible for me to give you the accurate figure now but the truth is that a lot of people were killed and several others injured,” he said.
He identified the negative attitudes of both the state government and security operatives for the ongoing killings in the area.
Ajiduku wondered why it had become impossible for the state government to put an end to the killings going on in the area.
He also expressed dismay at the Speaker of the State House of Assembly, Josiah Sabo Kente, for not showing concern over the activities of the attackers in his constituency.

According to him, the speaker never attempted to assess the situation.
“Most of the attackers taking place in Wukari occurred in the speakers constituency, yet he seems not to be disturbed. We are still blaming the speaker because he never attempted to come home and see things for himself,” he said.
He said rather than wading into the crisis that was eliminating his people, the speaker is "busy passing votes of confidence on the Acting Governor."
Also confirming the report, the Police Public Relation Officer in the State, Joseph Kwaji, said unknown gunmen carried out the attack.
He said the command did not have the exact figures of persons killed in the clash but police had restored normalcy in the area.
