Enugu attack
Attacks blamed on suspected militants from the Fulani ethnic group are only the latest episode of violence in NigeriaReuters

Attacks blamed on suspected militants from the Fulani ethnic group in Enugu State is only the latest incident in a growing catalogue of violence in Nigeria. Africa's biggest economy continues to be marred by religious and ethnic conflicts, terror attacks, widespread kidnappings for ransom, oil thefts and strident calls for independence.

From Boko Haram terrorists in the northeast to Pro-Biafran secessionists in the southeast, Nigeria's unity is threatened by ethnic groups and terrorist organisations fighting to destabilise the country, end perceived marginalisation or instigate a split from the federation.
