Ambazonia Freedom Crisis: Gov. Ishaku Warns Border Communities on the Mambilla Plateau

The Executive Governor of Taraba State His Excellency Arc. Darius Dickson Ishaku has warned communities bordering along the Republic of Cameroon in Taraba State not to get involved in the ongoing Ambazonia freedom crisis.

The Governor who was represented by the Speaker of the Taraba State House of Assembly Rt. Hon. Abel Peter Diah gave the warning at the end of the security meeting in line with the border communities on the Mambilla plateau.

He stated that what is happening in Cameroon should not spread to Nigeria.

“We want to inform all the law abiding citizens of Sardauna Local Government Area particularly those at the border communities not to get involved”.

“We are not a party to their problems, we are citizens of Nigeria so don’t let anyone deceive you by recruiting you into fighting in the Republic of Cameroon, he said.

He added that those at the border lines should be informed and stay clear of the border line and urged them to remain in Nigerian territory.

“Our security can only protect those in Nigeria but if you go outside this country to Cameroon they will not go there because that is not our country”.

The security meeting was held at Vakude, Mbamnga Constituency in Sardauna Local Government Area and was attended by the Caretaker Chairman of Sardauna Local Government, Hon. Godwil Sol, Army Captain Bakabe, District Heads of the border villages, other Traditional rulers in Sardauna Local Government, Counselors and other Security Agencies respectively.

Taraba Government Constitutes Various Security Committees to Tackle Insecurity

A special security meeting called by His Excellency, Governor Darius Dickson Ishaku held for several hours at Government House, Jalingo, Taraba State.

The meeting which was attended by representatives of all the security agencies in the state took far-reaching decisions on how to end the Tiv/Jukun crisis, kidnappings and armed robbery in the state.

The resolutions at the meeting were read out at a special media briefing by the Deputy Governor of Taraba State, Engr. Haruna Manu shortly after the meeting rose.

The meeting decided to set up a special task force made up of 15 members each from both the Jukun and Tiv sides to find a lasting solution to the crisis between them.

Another committee to address kidnappings and other related crimes will also be set up to be made up of critical stakeholders in the security agencies.

The meeting is a follow up to the one held recently in Abuja on the Tiv/Jukun crisis where it was agreed that the crisis being a Taraba State affair should be left to the Governor of Taraba State to handle.

The meeting, according to the Deputy Governor, also resolved that the boundary adjustment commissions from both Taraba and Benue states would liaise with the Federal Boundary Commission in order to quicken the process of demarcating the boundary between the two states.

The meeting believes that a proper boundary demarcation would greatly help in the resolution of the crisis between the Tiv and the Jukun.
