Unknown Gunmen Kill Taraba Traditional Ruler



Unknown gunmen killed on Thursday killed a third-class chief, Abdulmutalib Nuhu at Sensani Village in Gasol Local Government Area of Taraba State.

Nuhu was murdered a few hours before the hosting of the Nwonyo Fishing and Cultural Festival organised by the Taraba State Government in Ibi Local Government Area of the state.

Ibi is the home town of Hamisu Bala popularly known as Wandume, the popular convicted gun runner who was released from prison a few days ago.

The assailants stormed Sensani village at about 9 pm on Thursday and headed straight to the palace where they murdered Nuhu at his residence located a few kilometres from Ibi, the venue of the festival.


The Taraba State Government has however assured the people travelling for the event of adequate security during the festival.

The elder brother of the slain chief, Nuhu Sanseni told LEADERSHIP said the gunmen came on motorcycles with guns, killed his brother and left with his phones.

“They came to the area at about 9 pm last night, they went straight to his palace, shot and killed him, snatched his 2 phones, while they were going, they met with a young man who was coming on a motorcycle, they also shot and broke his leg before leaving the village,” Sansani narrated.

A senior police officer serving in Sansani revealed to our correspondent that his men were already trailing the killers.

Acting Police Public Relations Officer, PPRO Taraba state Command, ASP James Lashen when contacted, said he was still on his way to the office at the time of this report.


“I am not aware. I’m on my way to the office now, if I receive any situation report, I will inform you,” Lashen stated.
