It was also gathered that a witness, Ali Alhaji, said that the farmers went to work in their farms but did not return home in the evening.

Mr. Alhaji said that their families then alerted other people in the village on the missing farmers who dispatched a search team who recovered their corpses from the bush.

“The inhabitants alongside a team of vigilante members searched the bush and recovered the corpses.

“The deceased had their hands tied behind their back and their heads chopped off and placed on their back,” he said.

Mr. Alhaji added that one other farmer went missing after the attack, and that his motorcycle was found on his farm.

Another inhabitant of the village, Ibrahim Bukar, said the slain farmers were buried in accordance with Islamic rites.

“They were butchered to death in a horrific and barbaric manner,” Mr. Bukar said.
