Tiv Vs Jukun Crisis: Middle Belt Group Writes TY Danjuma Over Incessant Killings By Own Militias

The Middle Belt Reformers Movement (MBRM) has written elder statesman and former Chief of Army Staff, General Theophilus Yakubu Danjuma (Rtd) over the incessant killings by some persons believed to be Jukun militias in Taraba and Benue States.

The middle belt group said there is an obvious agenda by the Jukun ethnic group to wipe others from the face of the earth.

The warning came barely three days after three Benue students and a lecturer of the Federal University, Wukari was killed by some suspected Jukun militias, thus leading to the closure of the institution by the management.

In a letter addressed to Gen. Danjuma (rtd) and obtained by our reporter on Friday, the middle belt group frowned at what it tagged as ‘conspiratorial silence’ by Danjuma and other elders on the continuous killing of Tiv people in Taraba and Benue by Jukun militias.
