The committee appointed to address the recent crisis in Taraba State’s Karim-Lamido Local Government Council has recommended to Governor Agbu Kefas that he should facilitate the prompt return of all displaced individuals to the council.
Expressing this appeal in Jalingo, the state capital, on Tuesday, the committee’s leader, Alhaji Inuwa Bakari, stated, “Given that the governor has effectively restored order to the council, we urge him to also facilitate the return of the displaced persons to their homes.”
In the aftermath of unrest between the Wurkun and Karinjo communities in June of this year, many individuals were observed fleeing the council.
Recognizing the necessity of resettling those who had been displaced, Bakari implored the governor to ensure the secure return of those uprooted from their homes due to the conflict.
Witnessing the committee’s successful efforts in reestablishing peace between the conflicting ethnic groups, the governor promptly revealed a transformative directive for the committee’s future role.
He declared that the committee would transition into a relief-focused entity, with the responsibility of providing essential support to individuals who had endured displacement in the aftermath of the conflict.
After the restoration of peace in the region, it was observed that the 24-hour curfew previously imposed by the governor had been lifted.
