The Fulani nomads allegedly attacked the farmers who were working on their farms ahead of the rainy season in Christian-dominated Riyom village, 30 kilometres (18 miles) south of Jos, capital of the volatile state.

“We received reports that four people were declared missing in Riyom after they went to the farm in the early morning but never returned,” Plateau State police spokesman Mohammed Lerama told AFP on the phone from Jos.

“A search team discovered two bodies out of the four missing farmers. The two others are still unaccounted for,” Lerama said.
