"Then in 2016, more than 3 600 people have been killed in the escalating conflict between farmers and herdsmen in Nigeria, said Amnesty international in a report."
"According to the report, it is about the well-planned attacks, where automatic weapons have been used. The attacks must have lasted several hours and sometimes in days. 57 per cent of the deaths have occurred in the year."
"security Forces often have been in the vicinity, but they have acted slowly. In some cases, the security forces in advance to have known that something has been going on, but still not acted to prevent the murder, plunder and house fires."
"Violent conflicts between farmers and pastoralists in Nigeria have been going on for decades, but started to escalate in 1999. Then in 2017, the conflict has become increasingly deadly since the deteriorating conditions have forced cattle owners to move to the south pasture."
"Amnesty's report is based on over 260 interviews, and documents like hospital records and reports from the security forces."
