The Tiv/Jukun Crisis

Share this:

The major cause of the Jukun/Tiv conflict is the claim by Jukun that the Tiv are “settlers,” not indigenes in Taraba, and therefore, have no ownership right to the land they occupy.

The Tiv, on the other hand, use the longevity of their stay in Taraba to repel their settler status to claim land ownership, traditional and political rights.

These seeming claims, passed on to Jukun/Tiv offspring, are generating bloody scenes.
