Two serving top army officers, Major General John Enenche and Major General Adeyemi Yekini have been named as co-conspirators on an alleged plan to commit genocide against the Tiv people of Taraba State.

The two were also accused of aiding those already killing Tiv people in the ongoing Taraba crises.

The allegations were made on Saturday by the Tiv Youth Forum in Taraba State while addressing a news conference on the protracted crisis between the Jukun and Tiv in Taraba State.

They called on the Chief of Defence Staff, General Abayomi Gabriel Olonisakin and the Chief of Army Staff, General Tukur Yusuf Buratai to use their offices to investigate the roles of the two generals on the planned genocide against the Tiv people of Taraba State.

The spokesperson and President, Taraba State chapter of the Tiv Youth Forum, Katyo Aondona also accused the Nigeria Army of unprofessional conduct in the crises.

He said-“We specifically request that these two officers who are currently serving as Coordinator of Defence Media Operations and Commander, Operation Whirl Stroke should be replaced immediately with more competent and professional officers.”
