Worried by the perennial disputes which often end in bloodshed in their area, the Tangale Community Development Association, TCDA, has called on Governor Ibrahim Hassan Dankwambo to speed up action on boundary demarcation among neighbouring Tangale communities.
President of the association, Mr Kastner Teleh stated this in a press briefing on Tuesday in Gombe after a meeting of the TCDA.
The call was against the backdrop of the recent communal clash between a Tangale community in Billiri local government area and a Shongom local government community which claimed four lives on June 11.
“Boundary demarcation will go a long way in reducing the menace of killing. It will also allow people to do their legitimate work without fear of molestation.
“It will forestall a reoccurrence of the incident, bring about peace as well as reduce widowhood and high level orphanage among people” he said.
Tele also called on government to provide jobs for the teeming youths to reduce restiveness.
He commended the effort of Governor Dankwambo for the timely deployment of security personnel to the respective communities to protect the lives and property of the people.
He said the Mai Tangle, Malam Abdu Meisharu, elders and youths of Tangale land had unanimously agreed that the boundary should be demarcated between the communities around them.
