Three farmers have been reportedly killed by suspected Fulani bandits in Taraba State.

The incident which occurred in the early hours of Tuesday, was said to have taken place in Funkwa village, via Kwambai in Yangtu Special Development Area of the state.

Confirming the report, the Adamawa State Police Command Public Relations Officer, Abudullahi Usman, said the victims were killed on their way to the farm.

Emphasising that they were attacked by “gunmen suspected to be Fulani bandits,” he said efforts to track down the perpetrators, who according to him disappeared into the thin air, are in top gear.

According to him, the combined team of police and other security operatives which include soldiers have been assigned the responsibility of fishing out the perpetrators.

He urged those with genuine information about the culprits to not hesitate in reaching out to the security agencies.

Also confirming the report, the coordinator of the Special Development Area, Emmanuel Madaki, confirmed that the bandits killed the victims while they were on the way to their farms.
