Youths under the aegis of a Jukun Youth Cultural Development Association have expressed worry over the renewed spate of kidnappings, arson, and destruction of valuable properties by bandits in some parts of Taraba south.

The group at a briefing in Jalingo, Taraba state capital, Friday, says the trend of insecurity in the last one month is unbecoming at a time inhabitants of the area are anticipating the rainy season to return to their farms.

President of the group, Aboki Danjuma, however, called for restraint from the youths of the area and urged them to remain calm while the government and security agencies address the issue headlong.

According to him, “On Friday, 5th of February at precisely 7.30 pm in Bye-gya village on the Wukari-Ibi road, some suspected Fulani armed bandits blocked the road and kidnapped 6 persons, but 2 escaped from the kidnappers.
