GUNMEN KILL 15 PERSONS IN KARIM LAMIDO LGA OF TARABA

Gunmen have killed about 15 residents, including three housewives, at Binnari and Jab Jab villages in Karim Lamido LGA of Taraba State.


The incident occurred around 6pm on Wednesday November 10. 


Sources say the attack was in retaliation after some suspected kidnappers were killed by Vigilantes in the community some weeks ago.


Eons Intelligence gathered that the residents attempted to foil the attack but were outnumbered by the assailants, who stormed the villages with heavy ammunition.


Seven of the bandits were killed during the attack while others escaped with injuries.


It is pertinent to mention that the village head of Binnari and some local vigilantes were killed by bandits early this year.


DSP Usman Abdullahi, the State’s Police PRO, who confirmed the incident, said security operatives have commenced an investigation into the incident, adding that normalcy has been restored to the area.
