Imo Ugochinyere, CUPP spokesperson, in a statement, claimed that the APC was behind the ongoing religious killings being experienced in
It accused the nation’s security forces of giving those behind the sponsored killings tactic support with their silence, hence their failure to quell the uprising.
“The security agencies are not doing much, rather they are trying to undermine the governor”, it read.

“APC leaders are clearly not happy that they lost the election and they are stocking the killings and crisis to cause reprisal attacks from other religious groups which will lead to the declaration of state of emergency.
“We, therefore, call on the APC to accept defeat and call off their members from ongoing instigation of religious violence in Taraba State.
“Let President Muhammadu Buhari halt the carnage in Taraba State for the good of all and avoid acts which will lead to abrupt end of this
