Alarm has been raised by the Taraba State Government over a helicopter suspected to be loaded with arms and ammunition.
The helicopter was reported to have landed in a village called Jibu, in Wukari Local Government Area of the State.
According to Governor Darius Ishaku’s media aide, (Bala Dan) while speaking to newsmen said the arms and ammunition are suspected to belong to a Militia group that may be planning an attack on Taraba Villages.
Dan Abu said “This system of arms delivery was used prior to the tragic attack in Agatu communities in Benue State last year, which led to the killings there.
“When it was reported, nothing was done to trace and arrest the owners of the helicopter.
“That strategy worked for them in Agatu and they are using it again today.
“This may be another planned militia attack on the people of Taraba in the offing”.
The police spokesman David Misal, however, said the police have dispersed a surveillance team to the area to get to the root of the matter.
