An unconfirmed number of persons have been killed and many still missing in an ethnic clash between Tivs and Fulanis in Taraba State.The clash occurred in Sabon Gidan village of Dan Anacha town in the northern Nigerian state.
Although the spokesman for the police in the state, David Misal, could not confirm the number of persons killed, there were reports that over 20 persons may have been killed.
Mr Misal told Channels Television that the police had deployed officials to the area to restore peace and said he would give more information about the crisis afterwards.
Sources claim the crisis started on Saturday when two corpses of Fulanis were found killed in a bush. The situation, thereafter, triggered reprisal attacks on Tivs.
