One of the deceased, 30-year-old Naporo, is reported to have murdered his senior brother, Ibrahima over a parcel of land on Sunday afternoon.
Some aggrieved family members and youth in the community reportedly accosted him (Naporo), tied him to a tree and stoned him to death. The Zangu-Vuga assembly man, Peter Yidana, who confirmed the incident to Citi News said police were investigating the matter.
He noted that there had been a long standing feud between the two deceased persons over the parcel of land.
