Sixteen women and children massacred in Tari

EMTV has spoken to a health worker in Tari who confirmed the murders of 16 women and  children  including two unborn babies and their mothers.

The  killings happened early Monday morning in  Karida village, in the Tagali Local  Level government area.

The  health worker who lives at Karida village,  where the killings happened,  said the raid was  done quietly and lasted  up to 30 minutes.

“It was difficult  to identify the bodies because they were all chopped to pieces.  I had to give them mosquito nets to put the bodies in.”

Six women and eight  children aged between one and  15 were killed as they tried to escape.  Two pregnant women and their unborn children were also killed by the attackers.

It is understood,  the killings were a result of an ongoing tribal conflict.  EMTV has  been unable to establish the  exact reasons for the  attack.  This is one of several brutal killings in a space of two years.

We will keep you updated when new information becomes available.
