The Chairman of Toto Local Government Area Mr Nuhu Dauda who confirmed the incident to Daily Trust said, “It is sad for people to attack innocent citizens which led to the death of three people and lost of properties worth millions of Naira. I am calling on the perpetrators of the evil acts to repent and embrace peace.
“I received the report this early morning that Bassa militias attack Tudu Uku in Toto Local Government Area of the state which lead to the killing of three persons and burnt about seven Houses and vehicles among others. I also received a report that one boy is still missing during the attacked and the attackers beheaded one person”.
The Chairman assured the people of the area of his continued readiness to collaborate with the security agencies to ensure that permanent peace is restored to the area.
It would be recalled that recently, Major General Adeyemi Yekini, the Commander of Operation Wild Stroke in charge of Nasarawa, Benue and Taraba says they have recovered 45 assorted weapons and 701 assorted ammunitions from Bassa militia camp in Zwere, Toto Local Government Area of Nasarawa State.
