Gunmen believed to be herdsmen on Friday killed a farmer in Plateau, Mr. Zi Dung Gwom.

Gwom, 51, was shot at about 3pm, in Rasat village of Foron District in Barkin Ladi Local Government Area, when he went to plead with herders grazing in near his farm to control their straying cattle, eyewitnesses say.

The prime suspects it was learnt fled on taking out the deceased but an accomplice was arrested along with their herd of cattle.

Police who took custody of the suspect and cattle have yet to issue an official statement.
