Gunmen kill 5 persons in Taraba- Police

48 hours after security red alert, gunmen kidnap dozen in Abuja community attack

Suspected gunmen in the early hours of Sunday, killed five persons in Taraba state, hours after the presidential and National Assembly election on Saturday.

The Taraba Police Command Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Mr David Misal, confirmed the killing while speaking  to newsmen in Jalingo.

Misal said the five persons were coming from Umari to Cambri villages in Karim Lamido Local GovernmentAra when they were ambushed at about 3:00 a.m. by the hoodlums and shot dead.

The PPRO, however, explained that the killings had nothing to do with the elections.

“Yes, five people were ambushed by hoodlums and shot dead in the early hours of Sunday in Karim Lamido Local Government Council of Taraba.

“The killings do not have to do with elections, it is being investigated as a criminal matter,” he said.

The spokesperson of the All progressives Congress (APC) in Taraba, Mr Aaron Artimas, however, said one of the victims, Malam Muhammed Kambari, served as APC agent in his home town of Kambari and was coming from the village in the company of   others when some  gunmen suspected to be political thugs shot them dead.

“Kambari went to his home town of Kambari where he served as a party agent and was on his way back to Karim, the local government headquarters where they would proceed to Jalingo with the election results when he and four others were waylaid and killed.

“We have filed the report with the police and so far nothing has come out of it yet but it is our hope that they will bring the perpetrators to book,” he said.

The spokesperson of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the state, Alhaji Inuwa Bakare, described the death of the five persons as “most unfortunate” but maintained that the party had nothing to do with the incident.

“The election in Karim Lamido Local Government Area and indeed the entire state was very peaceful and there was no incident of recorded violence.

“It is sad that people were killed after the election on their way to back to Jalingo.

The Presidential and National Assembly elections were held peacefully across the state on Saturday and collation of results ongoing in various local government councils.
