The leader of the vigilante group in Sabon Birni, Musa Muhammad (aka Blacky), who confirmed the incident to Daily Trust, said that the marauders attacked the farmers around 4: 30pm on Wednesday, March 23.

“The people of the area thought they were abducted until this morning when their bodies were recovered,” he said.

He identified the deceased as Safiyanu Usman, Abdullahi, Ya’u Girmu and Ashiru Rilwan.

Another source was quoted to have said that the farmers were killed after they refused to sell their unharvested plants to them.

“They wanted to buy their plants for their animals and the locals refused to sell them to them. So they invited their people from other places. They came on motorcycles, encircled the farmers and killed them,” the source said.
