Taraba Governmwnt and army disagree over withdrawal of troops

The Taraba State Government on Saturday expressed shock over an alleged sudden withdrawal of the military contingent deployed in the state to enforce peace and security.

In a statement by the Senior Special Assistant to the Governor on Media and Publicity, Mr. Bala Dan-Abu, the Taraba State Government lamented what it described as unceremonious withdrawal of the troops from the state.

“The surprise is that no reason was given for the withdrawal and government was not aware.

“At the moment the reason for the withdrawal of the soldiers is not known to us,” the statement read in part.

The Chairman of the Donga Local Government Area, Nashuka Ipeyen, told one of our correspondents that soldiers deployed in trouble spots in the local government started pulling out around 1am on Saturday.

Ipeyen said he contacted the Commanding Officer, 93 Battalion Ada Barracks Takum, Lt. Col. Ibrahim Gambari, who said he ordered the withdrawal of the soldiers.

“I complained to him over the withdrawal of soldiers because we received information that some villages were going to be attacked, but he told me he couldn’t risk the lives of his soldiers.

“The commanding officer insisted that he was withdrawing the soldiers until the state government wrote an undertaking that it would take responsibility if any of the soldiers was attacked or killed.

“I don’t know why the state government would have to do that for the soldiers when the attackers are killing civilians on a daily basis,” he said.

But the Assistant Director Army Public Relations, 23 Brigade Yola, Maj. Kamarudeen Adegoke, said no soldier was withdrawn from the local government area.

“Our men are still stationed at their various duty posts. I don’t know where the state government got their information that troops have been withdrawn, but what I can confirm to you is that our men are fully on the ground,” he said.
