The Taraba State Police Command has confirmed the death of four persons in an early Friday morning attack on a Tiv community by suspected Fulani herdsmen.
Reports said the attackers hit the Ngutswen village in Gassol local government at about 10pm on Thursday.
They reportedly stole some motorcycles and other valuables in the attack which has caused heightened tension in the area.
The attack came barely 12 hours after Governor Darius Ishaku raised alarm of impending attacks in some communities in the state.
The governor had said the state received a notice from an undisclosed source that there will be an attack in 10 days time.
