Taraba IDPs Returns To  farms, Months After Displacement

by Our Reporter

Some of the internally displaced persons (IDPs) in central zone of Taraba State have started returning to their communities, following the directive by the State Governor, Darius Ishaku for the displaced persons to return home unconditionally.

Chairman, Taraba State Tiv traditional Leaders Council and Ter Tiv Bali, Zaki David Gbaa who confirmed the development to our correspondent in a telephone interview thanked Governor Ishaku for ensuring the return of peace in the area.

According to him, the Governor had directed the Chairman of the Local Government, Prince Musa Mahmud to facilitate the return of all displaced persons in the local government back to their homes.

“Following the Governor’s directive, a security meeting was held in Bali and a resolution reached for all the displaced persons to return to their homes.

“A letter to that effect has been sent to all the traditional rulers in the local government and our people are massively returning to their farms.

“I want to thank His Excellency, Governor Darius Ishaku for taking this step. He had directed that all lands belonging to the displaced persons which were allegedly taken over by some people should be vacated for their rightful owners to take possession.

“This development will return peace to our communities and avert impending hunger now that people are returning to their farms,” he said.

Some of the IDPs from Bali B ward, Sansani and Maihula communities who have since returned to their homes commended Governor Ishaku for providing an enabling environment for them to return to their homes after months in IDPs camps.
