//sectarian violence. again with the Christian vs Muslims. As MLK said, the most effective tool of the Pharaohs was to get the slaves fighting amongst themselves. Although not that simple, also tribal dynamics again. Our tribe vs. your tribe. And farmer vs nomadic//

Muslims are generally from the Hausa- or Fulani-speaking communities. They are often nomadic people who live from rearing animals or petty trade.

The mainly Christian Berom, Anaguta and Afisare groups have traditionally been farmers.

Some Christian farmers feel they are under threat, as Hausa-speaking Muslims come down from the north looking for pasture for their animals.
