Amnesty International has claimed that the farmer-herder conflict in Nigeria, has only been exacerbated by continued incompetency and inaction by the government. They believe that because the government has failed to both stop attacks before they occur and to prosecute the perpetrators, this conflict has only increased.
They have tracked that over 3600 people have been killed in the past three years due to this conflict, a very conservative number. Of these 3600, over half were killed in 2018 alone, making this conflict far more deadly this past year, than all actions by Boko Haram.
