Tiv/Jukun crisis: Tiv youths want Ishaku, Danjuma investigated

The Tiv Youth Council on Monday urged security agencies to investigate Governor Darius Ishaku and retired General Theophilus Danjuma over the continued crisis between Tiv and Jukun people of Taraba State.

President of the group, Chivir Mike Msuaan, in an address presented at press conference in Makurdi, said both Tiv and Jukun can live in peace if masterminds fuelling the ‘war’ are isolated and dealt with.


“We herein particularly invite the relevant security agencies to immediately proceed with a thorough investigation of Governor Darius Ishaku and Gen. T. Y. Danjuma (Rtd) in the interest of peace and unity of the two ethnic groups,” he said.

Msuaan added that there are allegations that the two powerful individuals may be supporting the Jukun militia.
