He said the sus­pects used a stick to hit the farmer on the head and when he (farmer) fell down, they es­caped with the mo­tor­cy­cle.

“It was even a woman re­turn­ing from the farm that saw two men on a mo­tor­cy­cle and some few me­tres away she saw the farmer ly­ing by the road side, with his face swollen,” he said.

Ac­cord­ing to him, fam­ily mem­bers of the vic­tim mo­bi­lized to the scene to con­vey him to a clinic at neigh­bour­ing Ijah vil­lage for treat­ment.
