Farmers and Nursing Mothers have been attacked in Zamfara State.

TVC News Nigeria gives us a report on an attack in Zamfara State.

It is with great sadness that we report the death of eighteen farmers in Zamfara, Nigeria. The farmers were killed by unknown gunmen while they were working on their farms in the villages of Kango and Karauchi. Nursing mothers were also abducted during this attack. This tragic event highlights the challenges that farmers in Nigeria face on a daily basis. They are constantly at risk of violence and death, simply because they are trying to feed their families and earn a living. We call on the Nigerian government to do more to protect these farmers and to bring the perpetrators of this crime to justice.

This is a continuous problem in the country today. We are getting reports on daily basis regarding senseless killings and kidnappings. Nigerian govt is hiding the facts that the country is at a lawless state.

Farmers have been at the receiving ends of this kidnappings, killings,bandityr and other things you can think off,that’s why there is shortage in supply of food and continuos increase in prices of foods, government should find a way for all these to stop.

How long does this menace have to continue? How many more people have to die before the government do the needful. There’s a lot of hardship people are battling already; insecurity should not join the list

When will this horrendous attacks on farmers stop. They are constantly killed and the government is doing nothing about it. If they don’t farm, how will they eat? They still go to farm and they are being eliminated. Their wives are being abducted, raped, maimed and maligned. When will this stop for goodness sake!

My fear about this raising terrorising activities of bandits on farmers is the lack of food by next year. If this activity continue unabated will lead to famine by next year. Government need to step up in handle this issue

Very annoying to live in a country where Government don’t care about the life of the citizens. No proper security. Government don’t want to do the needful, all the do is to condemn the act whenever it happened (Iron condemn) instead of them to do the necessary things to stop this killings, but they won’t

The allegedly unidentified gunman continue to hunt and gun down people. The Nigerian government has to take greater action to safeguard these farmers and bring the criminals responsible to justice.

Our government is handling this incessant killing by the Bandits, Fulani herdsmen, Boko Haram and the ISWAS with kids gloves. Very soon with these constant killing and kidnapping of our farmers including the destruction of farm products, Nigeria will experience food shortage Nationwide. There will soon be famine in the land.

The killing of farmers in Nigeria keep increasing everyday and the government is not doing anything to bring the perpetrators to book and this has cause lots of adverse effect to the populace because people can’t go to farm again and it’s has cause the price of food items to be on the high side and this can cause malnutrition.

This is getting out of hand every single day.

The level of insecurity in the country is at its peak.

Those terrorists are just killing innocents as they like, when there is nobody to retaliate.

May God save us.
