Ishaku warns of a big migration of cattle rustlers into Taraba

Taraba State Governor Darius Ishaku has warned that livestock rustlers from neighboring Cameroon have infiltrated some villages in the state.

“Government findings indicate that the problem is a case of cattle rustlers,” said the governor, who raised the alarm Thursday in Jalingo through the Commissioner of Information and Reorientation, Lois Emmanuel, in response to allegations that the ongoing attacks in Bali and Gassol councils are inter and intra ethnic clashes.

“Further evidence accessible to the government indicates that cattle rustlers from neighboring Cameroon have invaded many communities in the territories and are endangering the lives and properties, particularly cattle belonging to the indigenous residents,” the statement continues.

Internally Displaced Persons, or IDPs, have not been spared, according to Emmanuel, as the invaders kill, maim, and rape women. He was perplexed as to why some people blamed the ethnic crisis, claiming that those behind it had used different evil techniques to characterize the situation as being directed at a specific ethnic group in order to cause problems.

He claimed that vigilantes were used to thwart the foreign invaders.

“It is for this reason that the engagement of vigilantes in containing criminal operations is under the close monitoring of security agencies,” he says.

As he has stated, the vigilante will never be permitted to function alone in order to prevent them from seizing control of the laws.
