Many herdsmen have been accused of being the source of insecurity in some parts of the country, particularly the south and the north-central states.

In Benue, Nasarawa, Plateau in the north-central region of Nigeria, herdsmen and farmers have consistently clashed over alleged encroachment on farmlands and farm produce without compensation.

The development had led to another crisis, such as tribal clash and kidnapping, in which many host communities have accused the pastoralists of being the masterminds.
