Thomas Gaar, Acting President, Mdzough Tiv, a social-cultural organisation, has revealed that about 230 Tiv farmers were killed by gunmen suspected to be Fulani herdsmen in Doma, Keana, Awe, Obi and Lafia Local Government Areas of Nasarawa State.
Gaar, revealed this on Thursday at a press briefing in Lafia, the state capital.
He said, “Our farms and farm produce are devastated and currently in shambles. Our farms have become death traps as they are tagged ‘No go areas.’ The armed Fulani herders hunt the Tiv man on hourly basis even more than wild animals.”
The Mdzough Tiv leader stated that the destabilization of Tiv communities had negatively affected the social and political status of the Tivs in the state.
