ICC Note

10 people were killed in Kogi State, Nigeria when Fulani herdsmen raided a village on December 8. They also set the village ablaze and destroyed as much of the locals crops and livelihood as possible. This attack forced many families to flee the area and caused a large amount of chaos. This type of attack is becoming all too familiar across the Middle Belt of Nigeria. Fulani have conducted nearly more than 100 attacks on Christian villages this year leaving tens of thousands of people without hearth or home to return to.
