The Tor lorshagher community and other adjoining villages in Wukari local government area of Taraba state Wednesday lamented that the crisis that erupted between the Tiv and Jukun tribe in Wukari in 2019 claimed lives and valuable properties.
In a letter addressed to heads of security agencies in the state by Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) from Tor Iorshagher community and other adjoining villages in Wukari local government area and a copy made available to journalists urged security agencies to provide them with security to enable them return to their respective homes.
The letter called on the Police, the Department of State Services (DSS), the army and other security agencies to protect their movement.
The letter which was signed by the village head, Zaki Ordue Amouta and elders of the community, said the move was to avoid the situation where unpatriotic elements would take advantage of the large movement of people to their homes to cause chaos.
“We want to call on security agencies to provide us with the necessary security protection in accordance with the law to avoid misguided persons and criminal elements from taking advantage of the large movement of people to their homes to create chaos in the area.
“As law abiding citizens we find it imperative to officially notify you of our intention to start returning to our ancestral homes beginning Thursday November, 26.”
