The chief of Tiv in Bali, Ter David Gba’a, made the call while speaking with our correspondent in Bali.
He said the Fulanis are illegally occupying houses belonging to the Tivs who fled the area during the recent conflicts in Bali, hence the need for the Government to intervene.
Ter David, said over one hundred houses belonging to the Tiv people in the Bornu kurukuru village are presently being occupied by Fulanis from Bantaji, Gindin Doruwa, Pasuki and Dogonruwa areas of Wukari and Donga Local Government Areas.
The Royal father said recently, a Tiv man who returned to his compound was attacked by Fulanis who had earlier killed his family members and occupied his house.
He appealed to the Taraba State Government and the Committee set up in the Local Government Area to resolve the conflict and work out modalities that will facilitate the return of properties to the rightful owners.
He emphasized that this must be done urgently to both restore and sustain peaceful coexistence in the area.
When contacted, the Ardo of Fulanis in Bali, Amadu Borno Kurukuru refused to comment on the issue.
