Africa’s most populous country is on the brink

 

Mass violence is spreading across Nigeria. Fulani Muslim militias continue to massacre and displace indigenous Christians in the country’s Middle Belt, and the government seems unwilling or unable to stop them. While many Western analysts are convinced that the violence is the result of climate change and competition for land, people on the ground speak of a jihad rooted in the centuries-old tradition of northern Muslim dominance.

 

Meanwhile, Boko Haram and the Islamic State – West Africa Province (ISWAP) – continue to carry out deadly attacks, and the widespread insecurity is giving separatist movements in the country’s southeast and southwest new life.
