Fulani and Tiv leaders in Taraba State have agreed to a cease-fire aimed at bringing an end to the bloody clashes between the two tribes which have claimed several lives in some parts of the state.

The cease-fire agreement followed an intensive deliberation by the stakeholders of the two tribes held in Jalingo, the Taraba State capital on Sunday.

Six resolutions were adopted, signed by Alhaji Adamu Abacha, the Sarkin Fulani Bali, and Mr Zaki David Gbaa, the Ter Tiv Bali.

The cease-fire will pave a way for the displaced persons to return to their communities and peace to return to the troubled areas.

It was also agreed that an awareness committee should be set up to preach peaceful coexistence in the local communities.

The stakeholders also constituted a 15-man committee to find a lasting solution to the crisis and encourage the people to work together for the peace and security of the state.
