These horrifying events have left the community in shock and disbelief.
The gruesome story unfolded when Adamu Mohammed, a concerned villager, reported the disappearance of Kabiru Idi, 36 years old, and Bato Ali, 18 years old, both residents of Taranka village.
The two men had vanished without a trace about one month prior.
Ibrahim Umar, a 40-year-old man hailing from Dankunkuru village in Ungogo LGA, Kano State, had arrived in Taranka village supposedly for charcoal business.
