At least 15 farmers were reportedly killed when bandits stormed Bakurdi village in Jibia Local Government Area of Katsina State on Tuesday.
The development comes hours after over 40 farmers were slaughtered by Boko Haram fighters in Borno State.
The victims of the Katsina attack were killed while preparing their farms ahead of the rainy season. Bandits, riding on motorcycles, were said to have shot the farmers.
In a related development, bandits rustled over 100 cows at Danne Gaba village, Bugaje ward also in Jibia LGA.
Danne Gaba village is said to be about two kilometres away from the 17 brigade, a military barracks in Katsina.
Police spokesman in Katsina, SP Gambo Isah, could not be reached for comments on the attacks as at the time of filing this report.
