Gunmen have killed a large-scale farmer, Alhaji Saminu Barjanga, in Gassol Local Government Area of Taraba State.
It was gathered that the farmer was murdered on his farm at Barjanga village on Saturday, July 24.
Barjanga was also a businessman with many big shops at different locations in MutumBiyu, headquarters of Gassol.
According to Daily Trust, late Barjanga was abducted last year on the same farm and he reportedly paid over a N7million ransom.
Sources close to his family told Daily Trust that late Barjanga left his shop early morning that day to inspect his farm when he was attacked. His murderers might have probably trailed him from MutumBiyu to his farm.
The source said some people at a farm settlement near the victim farm heard somebody calling for help inside the farm.
It was further learned that three suspects rode away on a motorcycle from the farm where the farmer was murdered.
The victim had already died when the rescuers arrived at the farm. Nothing was removed from the victim as a large sum of money was found in his pockets.
