Taraba State Has Received A Notice Of Attack, Governor Cries Out
Governor Darius Ishaku of Taraba State yesterday disclosed he has received a letter by suspected insurgents that the state would be attacked within ten days.
Ishaku spoke when the National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Prince Uche Secondus, visited to offer condolences over the killings in the state.
“We are on notice that in 10 days, we (Taraba) shall be attacked. I have alerted all security agencies. We are waiting.
The Taraba State Commissioner of Police, David Akinremi, had in a statement, dismissed the report of arms-filled chopper landing in Taraba at night as “an unfounded and misleading rumour.”
But the state government is not satisfied. Residents are suspecting connivance, Ishaku said the alleged arms and ammunition might be meant for the militia group threatening to attack Taraba.
