Havoc was wrecked on houses and huts, farmland and food barns, economic trees and farmland by the rampaging herdsmen who were bent on occupying the ‘conquered communities’. 

 Former state Police Commissioner, Hyacinth Dagala, had attributed the crisis to a squabble between some Tiv locals and Fulani herders in the community. Efforts to stem the protracted crisis claimed the life of Assistant Superintendent of Police , 

ASP, Baba Ibrahim, who, until his death, was a member of the Task Force on Cattle Rustling and Kidnapping at the Force Headquarters, Abuja. According to the report, crisis erupted in the community after the locals mobilized and besieged a Fulani settlement in the area to stop a large herd of cattle and herdsmen from gaining access into their village. 

Governor Samuel Ortom has appealed to the feuding parties to sheath their sword in order to avert further loss of lives and destruction of property. The governor, who spoke at the end of a meeting with leaders of Tarka and Buruku local government areas of the state, also issued a seven-day ultimatum to security agencies in the state and paramount rulers in the two councils to fish out those fingered in the killings.
