The Nigerian Army has arrested three armed bandits at Rafin Kada village in Wukari local government area of Taraba state.
The chairman of Wukari local government area, Mr. Adi Daniel, who revealed how the bandits almost got access to the Village said the militia were from Abako area of Benue state and were captured by soldiers who are on patrol of the troubled areas.
Mr Daniel explained that the attempt by the militia to attack Rafin Kada, a Jukun town, came one day after a peace agreement was signed between Tiv and Jukun leaders at Kente town in the presence of security agents who served as witnesses.
The chairman stated that attempt by the Tiv militia to attack Jukun town shows that the Tiv were not sincere on the call they made last week for a cease-fire in the hostility between them and Jukun.
He said it was a breach of the peace agreement signed by the two warring factions by the Tiv people adding that Tiv were not committed to the peace accord.
Mr Adi Daniel also disclosed that since the start of the crisis about two Months now Jukun have stopped passing through Tiv land for fear of attack
He said, however, the Tiv are passing Wukari and other Jukun areas and nothing happened to them.
