Community Grieves Over Gunmen Attacks On Farmers Land Dispute.

About six farmers of the Tiv extraction have been killed by unidentified gunmen in the Kadarko Community of Keana Local Government Area of Nasarawa State.

This is coming after thousands of Tiv farmers in the southern part of the state had been displaced following persistent attacks on their houses and farmlands by suspected herdsmen in the area, while the other three farmers were shot by the gunmen around the Railway axis of the community.

Chairman, United Farmers Association in Kadarko, Denis Utsa, said the gunmen had invaded Tse-AbirAzer area of Kadarko during the weekend and unleashed mayhem on the people of the area, adding that apart from the six farmers killed by the bandits, many survivors of the attack had escaped into nearby bushes in the community with bullet wounds.

On his part, the President of Tiv Development Association in the state, Solomon Chunku, decried the situation and called for the urgent intervention of the state government to restore normalcy in the area.
