More than 100 people were killed in attacks over the weekend in Nigeria’s Plateau state, where clashes between herders and farmers are frequent.

The death toll has risen to 113, according to local official Monday Kassah. The violence is the worst since May, with well-coordinated attacks affecting over 20 communities.

Kassah did not specify the attackers. The region faces ongoing conflict often portrayed as religious or ethnic, involving Muslim herders and Christian farmers.

However, factors like climate change and agriculture expansion also contribute. The French Ministry of Foreign Affairs condemned the attacks, urging identification and justice for the perpetrators.
