Boko Haram Killings: Nigeria Heading For Scarcity Of Food — Kaduna Farmers

Following the brutal killings of over 43 farmers in Borno State by suspected members of Boko Haram, Kaduna farmers on Monday, expressed fears over looming famine in the country.

They lamented that the number of farmers massacred in the attack could be more than 43, as many persons were still missing.

In an interview on Monday, a rice farmer in Kajuru LGA, Mr. Yunusa Abdullah expressed fears that since no state is safe because of insecurity, many farmers are afraid to go to their farm land to harvest crops.

According to him, some farmers in his area were killed recently while attending to their farms.

Also speaking to us, a farmer along Zaria-Kaduna Expressway, Alhaji Budawaya Atachihankeli expressed worries over the increased number of armed bandits terrorising innocent farmers.

According to him, “the peasant farmers are the targets of these kidnappers, but they have forgotten that it’s the farmers that produce rice, beans, corn, yam they eat.”

He wondered why gunmen are after the lives of farmers who produce food stuff they eat.
