Justin Tyopuusu, Jalingo

The Taraba State Government and the Christian Association of Nigeria chapter in the state on Tuesday described as outright false the claim by the Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II,  that over 800 Fulani people were killed in the state last year.

Sanusi had in an interview with the Sunday Punch alleged that on one weekend, 800 Fulani were killed on the Mambilla Plateau in Taraba State.

 “I personally handed over to the Federal Government a dossier with the names and pictures of 800 Fulani people slaughtered in Taraba as well as names of persons known to have participated in the act of ethnic cleansing but nothing has been done,” Sanusi had alleged.
