Darius accuses men of God for Taraba crisis.

He made the accusation when the 8-man committee on Tiv internally displaced persons paid him a courtesy call on Wednesday. PRP still alternative to APC, PDP – Balarabe Musa Obaseki’s PDP membership card ready — Edo chair Ishaku said some people were disguising under religion to cause crisis in the state and warned that he will not take it lightly with such evil men. According to him, some people who claimed to be men of God were inciting crisis and promoting sentiment instead of promoting peace and peaceful coexistence among their followers.

He said he will not tolerate such people as their acts were contrary to his peace efforts in the state. “We tour parts of Taraba and Benue states along with my colleague Governor Ortom all in an efforts to find  a lasting solution to the Tiv/Jukun crisis but sadly some men of God are frustrating this effort. “I Will not accept any nonsense from anybody as my main focus as Governor is to ensure that permanent peace is restored in all areas affected by crisis,” Ishaku said. He lamented that the crisis had displaced people from their homes, adding that good people of the state should contribute to bringing lasting solutions to the crisis. “Taraba is a multi-ethnic and religious state where you have two brothers or sisters and in-laws belonging to two divides and in such case what do we do than to embrace one another and live in peace,” he further stated. Ishaku maintained that no development would be achieved without peace, adding that he will continue to do his best in making sure peace was restored in the areas affected by the crisis.   Related Taraba: Why Tiv/Jukun crisis refuses to end Tiv/Jukun crisis: Taraba delegation meets Tor Tiv, stakeholders on peace effort Group urges Buhari to act on killings in Taraba.
