11 killed in Adamawa crisis

05 February 2013, 10:07

 Yola - A witness in north-eastern Nigeria says 11 people have been killed in fighting between nomadic cattle herders and farmers.

The fighting happened around the village of Ngandum in Adamawa state where homes and farms were burnt in violence that erupted on Sunday.

Witness Gambo Ibrahim told AP that he counted 11 corpses in the village on Monday.

Adamawa state police spokesperson Ibrahim Muhammad confirmed the fighting occurred and said police were investigating.

Fighting between cattle herders and farmers often happens across Nigeria, as herders will allow their animals to graze on land and eat crops belonging to farmers.

Herders also routinely attack and kill those who harm their cattle.
