Party agent, others shot dead in Taraba

Police in  Taraba State  have  confirmed the killing of five persons by unknown gunmen in the early hours of Sunday.

Spokesman for the force in the state  Mr David Misal  told reporters in Jalingo that the  deceased  were  going  from Umari to Gambri  in Karim Lamido Local Government Area  at about 3am  when they  were shot dead in an ambush.

Missal said, “The killing had nothing do to do with the elections. However, we are  investigating the incident.”

But spokesman for  the All Progressives Congress in the state Mr Aaron Artimas said one of the victims Muhammed Kambari represented the APC  during the elections  in  his  Kambari hometown  and was going to Karim when suspected  thugs believed  to be working for a rival party killed him and  others.

He said, “ Kambari went to his hometown where he served as a party agent and was on his way back to  the local government headquarters  (Karim)  from where  he and the other four men   were to travel  to Jalingo to submit  the results of the elections when they were ambushed  and killed.

“We have  reported  the  incident to the police but  so far nothing has been done to arrest the killers.”

Spokesman for the Peoples Democratic Party Inuwa Bakare lamented the killing.

However, he  dissociated the PDP from the killings.

“It is sad the  men  were killed after the elections on their way  to back to Jalingo.”
