Terrorists have killed 11 farmers at Ghandi district in Rabah local government area of Sokoto state.
According to a report by Daily Trust, the attack occurred around 12 noon on Saturday.

“They met them on their farmlands and killed them for no reason,” the Secretary to the District Head of Ghandi, Tukur Muhammad, said.
The terrorists were said to have attempted to abduct other farmers but vigilantes foiled it.
Muhammad disclosed that eight of the farmers were killed at Kuryar village while three 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 levy before they can cultivate their farms and this is the only means of livelihood in our area,” he said
