May12, 2023 was indeed a black Friday for inhabitants of Takalafia and Gwanja communities in Karu Locol Government Area, Nasarawa state, particularly the immediate family of Mrs Aliko.

By the time the dust raised by the invasion settled, no fewer than 41 lives were dispatched into the early graves.

Among them were Janet’s husband, Aliko, and the only two children.

It was learnt that as the gunmen stormed the area, shooting sporadically and setting houses ablaze, the late Aliko had prayed to God to accept his soul even before opening the door to the house were he was shoot dead.

Their innocent kids were also not spared by the invaders while their mother escaped death only because she traveled to PortHarcourt to sell yam and returned a few minutes after the incident to find her husband and two kids in the pools of blood.

The attack, it was gathered, had resulted from disagreement between the farmers and herders in the area over latter’s alleged encroachment into the farmlands of the former. The ensuing face-off, resulted in a clash with two neighboring communities.

Janet, who has yet to come to terms with becoming a widow said she could not believe that all the hope that she and her husband had nursed about success in life had been dashed by his sudden death.

Janet, who narrated the circumstances that surrounded the death of her husband and two children, said;

“I was actually not around. I would have been dead too if I was, but my husband sent me to go sell yams in Port Harcourt.

“We were in touch up till yesterday night. So, I could not believe that the incident was real until I saw the lifeless bodies of my husband and kids lying in pools of blood.

“I didn’t know that I will never see them again. My life is ruined and there is no hope for me again.

“The herdsmen have finished me. Killing my husband and two kids is too much to bear,” she said.

Janet, who claimed that her husband sacrificed his life for the community, added that life has not been same since the dead of her beloved husband with her lovely kids.
