The Middle Belt region, located in the central part of the country, is culturally diverse with a predominantly Christian population to the south and Muslim to the north. In addition to criminality, political tension and terrorism, conflict emblematic of this region is inter-communal and tends to fall along several overlapping fault lines: (1) farmers versus pastoralists, (2) Christians versus Muslims, and (3) indigenes versus non-indigenes. In Plateau, for instance, there has been significant levels of violence in the northern LGAs between the ethnically Berom (who are predominantly Christian farmers and considered to be indigenes) and the ethnically Fulani (who are predominantly Muslim pastoralists and considered to be non-indigenes). Farther south, in Wase and Langtang local government areas, there has been violence between the ethnically Fulani and the ethnically Tarok (predominantly Christian farmers.) In Benue and Taraba states there has been violence between the Fulani and the Tiv (also predominantly Christian farmers).
