Insecurity: Council Chairman Resigns In Taraba

The chairman of the Caretaker Committee of Ussa Local Government Council of Taraba State, Abershi Musa, has reportedly resigned from his position.

Musa made his decision known in a letter reportedly addressed to Governor Darius Dickson Ishaku on Wednesday, April 5, 2023.

“I write to notify you of my voluntary resignation as the Caretaker Chairman of Ussa Local Government Council with effect from today, the 5th of April, 2023,” the letter reads.

Naija News understands that the council boss did not explain why he resigned from the position. It was, however, gathered that Musa’s resignation was necessitated by the unabated attack and killings in his locality by bandits.

Scores of people were said to have died as a result of several attacks while goods worth millions of naira were also destroyed by the assailants in separate attacks.

Recently, the house of the traditional ruler of the council was attacked and set ablaze by suspected herdsmen. A source who spoke to Daily Post on the happenings in the area said Musa’s resignation as the council chairman “has become necessary following the inability of the state government to end the senseless killings and the destruction of the property going on in Ussa.”

Also, a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) who spoke with the news platform referenced that the inability of the state government to bring to an end the unrest in the council, compelled Musa to bow out of office.
