"The attackers used knives, not guns, to kill all eight farmers, so as not to attract attention," militia leader Babakura Kolo said.
Local communities have resorted to armed vigilantes or militias, who work alongside the army, as self-defence.
"They (Boko Haram) hacked the farmers and slit their throats," said a second militia leader, Umar Ari, who was involved in evacuating the bodies.
