Taraba: Police trail former council chair Tikari over allege

The Taraba State Police Command said it was trailing a former Chairman of Takum Local Government Area of the State, Shiban Tikari over the alleged murder of a former lawmaker, Late Hosea Ibi.

The deceased lawmaker was kidnapped on December, 30, 2017 and found dead along the Takum-Kashimbila road in the same LGA.

His lifeless body was found 16 days after he was abducted by unidentified armed men from his house located opposite Ada Barracks in Takum.

The suspects who were arrested in connection to the abduction and killing had been prosecuted at the State High Court by Justice Joel Agya.

The suspects had confessed to the crime and revealed that they were contracted by the former Chairman to carry out the abduction.

The State Commissioner of Police, CP David Iloyonomon on Thursday said the command will ensure his arrest.

Speaking to journalists at the State Command Headquarters in Jalingo, the state capital, the commissioner said: “We initially didn’t want to make much noise over our plans to get Hon Tikari arrested because we know that such persons can escape.

“We are looking for him, we recently gathered that he has left the state, we have been trailing to arrest him for possible prosecution, anywhere he is, we must get him arrested, it’s just a matter of time."
