Suspected gunmen have allegedly killed two farmers in Tsonje village, on Kagoro-Gidan Waya road in Kaura Local Government Area of Kaduna State.

It was gathered that the victims who were murdered in an ambush on Thursday in what was suspected to be a counter-reprisal attack.

The victims, Kasang Ambakadi and Clement Moses, all of Agban Kagoro were killed in the farm in an ambush by suspected gunmen.

A witness, Mr Isah Awulu said the situation has generated tension in the area to the extent that farmers find it difficult to go to their farmlands.

Confirming the development, the Vice-Chairman, Caretaker Committee, Kaura Local Government, Joy Aku said the two dead bodies have since been deposited at Kaura Rural Hospital in the Local Government.

Aku said key stakeholders in the area were already holding meetings to appeal to the people not to take the law into their hands but allow security operatives to handle the station.

She explained that security operatives in the area have maintained constant surveillance and patrol to nip in the bud any further attempt at reprisal or breach of the peace.

The Nigeria police, Kaduna State Command, is yet to react to the incident as at the time of filing this report.

Recall that a palm wine tapper was killed by cattle rustlers at the same Tsonje village which in turn, led to the killing of three cattle rearers as a reprisal by angry youths late last week.
