Making Sense of Nigeria's Herder, Farmer Conflict

Clashes between herders and farmers have killed thousands of innocent people in Nigeria over the past two decades. Disagreements over the use of essential resources such as farmland, grazing areas and water between herders and local farmers are said to be the main reason for the fighting. Tens of thousands of people have been displaced. The UN has said the violent conflicts between herders and farmers are becoming more sophisticated and more deadly.
