He said: “We condemn the attack in strong terms and call on the government of Taraba State to conduct a deep investigation into the assault with a view to unraveling the motive behind the evil act.

“The issue of insecurity in the area involves the two states and we call on the governors of Taraba and Benue to find common ground in solving this problem.”
