The Government of Taraba State had raised alarm over a helicopter suspected to be loaded with arms and ammunition, which on Saturday night reportedly landed in a village called Jibu, in Wukari local government area of the state.
Governor Darius Ishaku’s media aide, Bala Dan Abu told newsmen that the arms and ammunition were allegedly meant for a militia group that may be planning attacks on Taraba villages.
“This system of arms delivery was used prior to the tragic attacks in Agatu communities in Benue State last year, which led to the killings there.
“When it was reported, nothing was done to trace and arrest the owners of the helicopter.
“That strategy works for them in Agatu and they are using it again today.
“This may be another planned militia attacks on the people of Taraba in the offing. ” Dan-Abu said.
Meanwhile, the police spokesman, David Misal, said a surveilance team had been directed to the area to get to the roots of the matter.
