Police are said to be investigating a case of assault on a dry season farmer in a Plateau village, Central Nigeria.
The victim identified as John Danladi was reportedly lynched by a group of herders while working in his farm in Rakung village, in Ropp District of Barkin Ladi LGA.
Danladi was said to have been assaulted after attempting to protest against an alleged trespass on his farm by the herders.
The herders armed with machetes and sticks reportedly beat him to coma and fled before the villagers arrived.
Mr. Danladi according to sources was however able to identify one of the suspects after being resuscitated.
The suspect was therefore traced and captured by the villagers who later handed him to the police.
Vigilante officials have confirmed the incident but police were still being contacted as at the time of filing this report.
A similar case was reported on Tuesday in Riyom on this platform where Fulani herders allegedly attacked a farmer in his farm and ended up being nabbed by villagers.
Three Killed in Adamawa by Fulani
Meanwhile three people were reported to have been killed and one other seriously wounded by killer herdsmen in Dashen, a chamber settlement in Jada local government of Adamawa State following a disagreement between the farmers and the Fulani herdsmen who drove their cattle into the farms of the victims to eat up their farm produce.
The victims reports say were shot and killed on the spot while the fourth victim narrowly escaped with bullet wounds to inform the community who went after them but could not catch up with the Killer Herdsmen.
The incident was said to have raised tension in the area as youths were said to be threatening a showdown in retaliation.
The attack in chamba community followed reported incidences of Fulani attacks on farmers in Shafuron, kodomti of Numan local government which allegedly triggered deadly reprisals.
