The curfew was imposed in a bid to contain the situation.

According to the Spokesperson of the Police, David Misal, “a round-the-clock curfew has been imposed in affected areas “due to the escalation of violence between Fulani and Mambilla ethnic groups”.

NIGERIA NEWS gathered that, “Nigeria has been gripped since the start of the year with an increase in clashes between the largely nomadic herders and farmers over land, water and grazing rights.”

“At least 10 people were killed in several days of violence in Taraba last week into the weekend, while some 24 lost their lives in the central state of Benue in the last few days.”

“The government, after consultation with security agencies, finds it necessary to impose a curfew in order to allow security operatives to restore peace.”

“From Wednesday, residents in (the affected areas) have been ordered to remain indoors day and night indefinitely until the security situation is reviewed.”

Recall that, “last year, the cattle herders union claimed more than 700 people were killed in violence, although the authorities gave a much lower death toll.”
