Herders Kill 100+ in Nigerian Conflict Over Land

Dozens of gunman on moterbikes killed more then 100 villagers over a conflict over land in North Nigeria. It all began on a Tuesday night. It made lots of people leave. People were still burring victims on Thursday, and they came back and shot down seven more people. They also set fire to thatch-roofed huts. This went own for a long time, with them moving out and then the gunmen kill a bunch more of them. While some were burring they counted 103 bodies in three of the four villages, and five vehicles were torched. It was the gunman's mission to wipe them all out.

My Reaction:
It is crazy that these people would kill all of these other innocent people just for some land. I could not think that people are that curl to others. And they leave them with nothing because they burn everything and kill most of the people so the ones that are still alive don't have any family. I could not live without my family here with me.

  1. A survivor of the genocide in Darfur said that if the world did nothing about Darfur, then genocide would happen again and again because people would see that it works. That was in 2007. Clearly he was right. If they want the land, they should talk to the people and if they don't want to give it up, don't take it.

    All these conflicts where people burn villages and kill everybody in them show that people are evil if the government allows them to be.
