Kogi: Security Men Takeover Tawari Community After Friday Deadly Attack

Date:

Security agencies in Kogi State have taken over Tawari Community after a deadly attack in the earlier hours of Friday led to the death of 23 persons.


This is just as Governor of the State, Yahaya Bello, directed Kogi State Emergency Management Agency to start taking stock of damages in Tawari community.


During the attack, about 23 persons were killed, houses razed while a place of worship was not speared by some suspected Fulani herdsmen who were said to be on a revenge mission.


However, it was gathered on Saturday that security men have been drafted to the community by the State Government to avoid further attack by the Fulani herdsmen.
The Administrator of the Local Government Council, Muhammed Tanko while speaking said that the situation has been brought under control.

He noted that the presence of the Security Officials brought hope to the people of the Community as those who ran away during the attack have started returning to Tawari Community.


He commended Governor Bello for his rapid response during the attack, stressing that those who sustained injuries are responding to medical treatment at both the Federal Medical Center and the Specialist Hospital Lokoja.


Some of the community members who spoke said the attack on Tawari community was unfortunate.

According to one of the residents, some of the Fulani living in the community moved out of the town with their family few days to the attack.


The resident who does not want his name in print added that when they confronted them on why they were leaving, they said it was a normal thing for them to move from one place to another but surprisingly some days later they came at night and killed people.


Another resident, Mallam Mohammed Musa, who also spoke said residents of the community lost their beloved ones during the attack.


He stressed that during the attack, the Fulani herdsmen killed people like animals.
“Those people are heartless. They killed as if they are killing chickens. No human feelings, they attack from various angles. One couldn’t have escaped, they were everywhere,” he said.
