Farmer-herder clashes kill 3600 in Nigeria

Clashes in Nigeria between farmers and semi-nomadic herders have killed more than 3,600 people since 2016, according to Amnesty International.
In a report released on Monday, the human rights group said that more than 2,000 people had been killed in 2018 alone, while thousands more had been made homeless.
Violence between the groups is on the increase in Nigeria over access to fertile land and water, which is becoming scarce in the face of drought and rapid population growth.
