Benue/Taraba Govts Begs For Security Deployment

The governments of Benue and Taraba states have called for deployment of security personnel to communities affected by the lingering Tiv/Jukun crisis to end the conflict and enable displaced persons return to their ancestral homes. 

This resolutions was reached at the end of the joint security meeting of the two states in Makurdi to review the progress  recorded by the peace committee set up by both states to proffer lasting solution to the crisis.

While lamenting the failure of governments of both states to implement resolutions reached in previous peace meetings, both parties however called for an immediate cessation of hostilities from both sides to make way for peace building efforts to commence.

They also agreed on  the need for synergy between traditional rulers of the affected communities to persuade the youth to end all forms of hostilities. Members of the committee from both sides should also work as a team and make efforts to de-emphasize their differences and work in synergy with a view to coming up with a workable solution to the crises.
