Bandits have reportedly asked some rural farmers in Kachia LGA of Kaduna State to go ahead with their farming activities after they collected N6.2 million and four bags of rice from them.

City & Crime earlier reported that bandits on May, 21, 2024, chased away farmers who were cultivating their farms at Unguwar Jibo and Nasarawa-Azzara communities and asked them to raise N100,000 each before they would be allowed to continue.

It was learnt that before accepting the 6N.2m, the bandits last week rejected N725,000 the farmers raised for them, saying it was too meagre, and asked the farmers to ensure they brought something bigger.

Speaking to our reporter through telephone on Tuesday, a farmer from of the communities explained that: “Last week we were able to raise N725,000 for the bandits, which they rejected and insisted that we must raise something bigger. We started struggling since last week before we were able to raise N6.2m and four bags of rice.”

He further said the bandits collected the money and the bags of rice in the axis of neigbouring Katari village and asked them to continue with the cultivation of their farmlands.

The spokesman of the Kaduna State Police Command, ASP Hassan Mansur, was yet to react on the development.
