Nigeria: Relentless attacks despite the COVID-19 lockdown

Share this:

Based on the need to curtail the spread of the deadly COVID-19, states in Nigeria started enforcing a total ban on human and vehicular movement. Kaduna state, northwest Nigeria, followed suit to ban all forms of movement. Even interstate travels were banned. Government and security men were everywhere ensuring total compliance.

Although the ban has since been lifted, attacks by Fulani militia on Christian villages, especially in the rural areas of Southern Kaduna, have killed more people* in Kaduna state  than the coronavirus itself.
