The Taraba State Police Command yesterday  confirmed that five people were killed and several others injured in fresh attacks on Fulani communities by suspected Mambilla militia in Sardauna local government area of the state.
According to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), the   Police spokesman in the state, Mr. David Misal said the crisis erupted in Nyiwa and Yerimaru areas on Thursday following a misunderstanding between a farmer and a herder.

He said units of mobile policemen and soldiers from the 20 battalion in Serti were deployed to the area to maintain law and order.

Misal added that the situation, which led to the burning of several homes and killing of many cows, had been brought under control.

A victim of the attack, Malam Abubakar Ardo, who escaped with his family, told NAN in Gembu that the attacks started at midday on Thursday and most of the killings occurred in the night.

He said almost all houses in about 15 Fulani communities were torched by the assailants.

Ardo said that the timely arrival of both army and police prevented further killings and destruction of property.
