Fulani Herdsmen

The raids by nomadic Fulani herdsmen are considered as the biggest security threat facing Nigeria after the Boko Haram insurgency.

The herdsmen, mainly from the Fulani ethnic group, and farmers often clash for control of water and land (grazing territories).

According to the Global Terrorism Index, over 1,200 people were killed in 2014 by different groups of Fulani herders.

In 2016, more people died in clashes with the herdsmen than in Boko Haram attacks. Follow all the updates on NAIJ.com.
