He said that eight of the farmers were killed at Kuryar village while three were killed in their neighbourhood.

“They don’t want us to work on our farm. They attack our farmers on daily basis. They also asked other villages to pay a levy before they can cultivate their farms and this is the only means of livelihood in our area,” he said.DSP Sanusi Abubakar, Spokesman of the Sokoto State Police Command, when contacted, said he was in transit but he would find out and call back.
