Journey Back to Plateau State

On December 24th, 2023, many people, including several children and women, were mercilessly hacked to death in what is unfolding as a conflict between farmers and herders. According to the latest figures by the government, over 200,000 people are affected; 331 people have been killed, including children, and 153 have been injured. Of this number, over 34,000 are displaced, living in temporary shelters, including religious structures and schools, with thousands in host communities. Their once peaceful and stable lives were overturned in the blink of an eye. Children lost their parents, and mothers saw their children being dragged and then killed while they stood there, helpless and in shock.
