Nasarawa warring neighbours resolve conflict, indigene embargo lifted

TIV and Alago ethnic nationalities of Nasarawa State have resolved to put aside their differences and embrace peace.

Leaders of the two tribes, made the resolve on Thursday in Lafia during a peace and reconciliation meeting, which provided them the opportunity address a number of issues causing friction between them.

In a communique jointly signed by the President of Alago Development Association, Marthin Audu-Doma; and his Tiv Development Association’s counterpart, Peter Ahemba, the two groups said the move was also aimed at supporting the initiative of the state governor, Abdullahi Sule, to enhance peace and security in the state.

According to the communique, the existing embargo on the issuance of indigene certificate to Tiv people in the Keana Local Government Area of the state should be lifted by the authorities concerned, pointing out, however, that only Tiv persons known to be indigenes of the LGA should be issued the certificate when the need arose.

“That the Paramount Traditional Rulers of Alago extraction should be encouraged to work more closely with their subordinates, leaders of ADA/TIDA and other relevant stakeholders to amicably resolve conflict of land ownership and occupation in their respective domains.

“That youths from both tribes should refrain from making inflammatory comments capable of igniting tension and jeopardising the peace and reconciliation efforts of leaders of the two associations,” the communique reads in part.

Both tribes had been having conflicts for many years, but residents expressed the hope that the peace agreement would bring a lasting solution.
