Suspected herdsmen on Tuesday struck at a suburb of Jalingo, the Taraba State capital, killing six traders at Iware market.
It was gathered that the deceased were also robbed of their cash.
Five of the victims are natives of Mayo-Lope, Lau local government area of Taraba State where scores were massacred and several others injured by herdsmen few days ago.
The other victim, whose name was given as Ethan Nast, is said to be a resident of Damsa local government area of Adamawa State.
An eyewitness, who spoke under anonymity, told the Nation newspaper that the men, already displaced by crisis involving Fulani herdsmen in their area (Lau) on Tuesday came to Iware market with their cows to sell and do some other businesses to alleviate their suffering.
“They were trailed by their assailants all the way from Mayo-Lope where they set off, to Iware where they were hacked to death at the market,” the source said.
