About 77 people lost their lives during the crises between some Fulani herdsmen and the indigenous people of Wukari, Taraba State few days ago, the Red Cross yesterday said.

Meanwhile, the Traditional Ruler of Wukari, (Aku Uka), His Royal Highness Shakarau Angyu who briefed the state’s Acting Governor, Alhaji Garba Umar, yesterday, blamed the Fulani for igniting the crises.

He urged Umar to review the 24-hour curfew imposed on the town so that people could go out and buy food or attend to some of their needs outside their houses.

Umar however declined, saying the curfew would continue till the security agencies were satisfied with improvement in the security situation.

“In my opinion, it is not yet time to relax the curfew imposed on Wukari because the youth are still very angry.

“Even this morning, a house was burnt close to a security check point in Wukari town,” the Acting Governor said, and asked parents to call their children to order.

Umar also promised to send a delegation to the government of Benue State in a bid to find solution to the incessant clashes between the Fulani and their neighbours in Taraba State.
