Deadly sectarian violence in central Nigeria

Armed men attacked the majority-Berom Shonong village in the Riyom local government area, killing at least 30 people and wounding an unknown number. Violence in central Nigeria is often due to land disputes between semi-nomadic communities like the Muslim Fulani and farming settlers who are mainly Christian Berom. Travellers to Nigeria should use extreme caution. Some countries advise their citizens to reconsider travelling to this country.
