Inter-Group Relations in the Lower Benue Valley Since 1900: What Went Wrong?

By Aboki Associates

Summary

This work examines why the Lower Benue Valley
communities that were erstwhile at peace with
themselves have now earned a reputation as an area
noted for orgy of violence along the Settler-Indigene
divide. In fact, the continuous struggle between groups
of the zone has intensified with attendant consequences
of group distrust, suspicion, antagonism and tension
culminating in violent expressions. Thus, the Lower
Benue area has been stigmatised as an area known for
violence.

Abstract

Communities that make up the Lower Benue Valley, all
migrated from different areas to the Lower Benue Valley
because of the valley’s attractive features and fertile soil.
There existed a kind of mutual harmony as peaceful coexistence
reigned between groups that arrived later i.e.
host-settler communities. In other words, tolerance,
accommodation, patience and love existed between the
communities. Even when conflicts arose, they were
amicably resolved thereby strengthening inter-group
relations through the conflicts. Something later went
wrong. What, went wrong?
This work examines why the Lower Benue Valley
communities that were erstwhile at peace with
themselves have now earned a reputation as an area
noted for orgy of violence along the Settler-Indigene
divide. In fact, the continuous struggle between groups
of the zone has intensified with attendant consequences
of group distrust, suspicion, antagonism and tension
culminating in violent expressions. Thus, the Lower
Benue area has been stigmatised as an area known for
violence.
Specifically, the work sees the changing trend of peaceful
and mutual co-existence to the divisive legacy of
colonialism which emphasised the differences of the
people by bringing to the fore that, the people and
communities were separated from great distances,
differences of history and traditions, ethnology, political,
social and religious barriers. Closely related, the nature
and character of colonialism was economically exploitative.
