The Tiv and Fulani ethnic gatherings in Takum and Katsina-Ala neighborhood committees of Taraba and Benue states have consented to sheathe their blades and embrace harmony.
They took the choice yesterday at a joint security meeting in Takum before security bosses, customary rulers and administrators of the two nearby gatherings.
Director of Takum, who facilitated the gathering, Shiban Tikari, said his neighborhood committee noted with bitterness the cross-line frailty between the two chambers; thus the need to checkmate the appalling situation.
He refered to the perpetual grabbing, furnished theft and killings, among different indecencies, in Takum, which he said had become a danger to individuals employing the street.
Asking why the killings, abducting, furnished theft don’t happen in different networks with the exception of the Tiv settlements, he enticed the Tiv pioneers to stop from safeguarding crooks in their middle.
On his part, the Chairman of Katsina-Ala, Avalumun Atera, who promised not to quit uncovering culprits of violations in his area regardless of various dangers to his life, encouraged the Fulani to let bygones be bygones and not fight back late assaults by presumed Tiv volunteer armies.
He urged the Fulani to, too, notice their young people from enjoying acts fit for shortening the generally accomplished harmony in the spaces.
The security bosses at the gathering, including the administration of Operation Whirl Stroke and the police, pointed at the Tiv young people as the ones executing violations in the spaces.
Tolerating to allow harmony an opportunity, Tiv and Fulani agents encouraged security agents not to lay on their paddles, forthcoming the demolition of the culprits and their patrons.
They asked the customary rulers to return home and alert their subjects, particularly the young.
