Barely one week after the death of the Speaker of Taraba State House of Assembly, Haruna Tsokwa, under vague circumstances, his deputy Adamu Tanko Maikarfi has also escaped being killed by unknown assassins, who trailed him to a certain location in Jalingo.

The journalists, who received this information from a credible source, confirmed the story from the Deputy Speaker through their source.

Maikarfi who sounded fearless on the phone said,

“It is true that they came wanting to kill me in my brother’s home. They got tips that I was there; when they came they did not meet me, after they searched all the rooms holding everyone at gunpoint.

He thanks God that no one has been killed. However, his wife was traumatized as they took her around the house searching for me

Maikarfi added that he would continue to stand by the truth and will not bow to any pressure to comprise his office.
