Soldiers Kill Five Youths In Taraba State

Five youths, including a final year Higher National Diploma (HND) student of the College of Agriculture, Jalingo, Taraba State, have been shot dead by soldiers, who allegedly opened fire on them.

The incident, which occurred around 1am yesterday in Baka village of Ardo-Kola Council, led to tension across the state.  The victims, who were said to have been returning to their various residences from a wedding ceremony in Baka, were said to have been mistaken for members of a kidnap gang by the soldiers patrolling the area, with several others on the same journey reportedly sustaining injuries.
