Suspected bandits have ambushed and killed a Catholic priest in Kufai Amadu in Takum local government area of  Taraba state.

According to Channels Television, the priest was on his way to Takum for a peace meeting with his fellow clergymen on how to resolve the lingering Tiv/Jukun crisis when he was killed.

Shiban Tikari, chairman of the council, said the clergyman and his vehicle were set ablaze.

The chairman identified the deceased as David Tanko, a reverend father who hails from Wukari local government area of the state.

Tikari alleged that the attack was carried out by “Tiv militias”.

He blamed several other attacks that have claimed lives and property in southern Taraba on the group.

Taraba is one of the states affected by the high rate of insecurity in the country.

David Misal, spokesman of the Taraba police command could not be reached for comment as of the time of filing this report.
