No fewer than twenty-eight persons were feared killed while 10 houses and two mosques were razed after fresh crisis broke out in Wukari town of Taraba State on Wednesday.

It was gathered that trouble ensued when women and children were protesting against alleged extra-judicial killings by soldiers deployed to keep peace in the area, following endless communal clashes in the community.

Naijacrux reports that the protest occurred on Wednesday morning amid fresh fighting between Jukuns and some Fulani gunmen.

Report says 28 people were killed in the fresh attack, but the police put the casualty figure at six, adding that 10 others were injured.

The Police Public Relations Officer, Mrs. Joseph Kwaji, a DSP, while confirming the sad incident said that 10 houses were also burnt, including two mosques.

According to him, the police have restored normalcy in the area.

?I can confirm to you that only six people were killed, 10 others injured and 10 houses burnt, which included two mosques?.

He added, ?The tension in the town arose from a peaceful protest by some women and youths in the area. We have also put the situation under control. The protesters said they wanted soldiers removed from the area?.
