Kano – At least 20 people were killed in violent clashes on Friday between Christian and Muslim mobs in central Nigeria's Taraba state, prompting a round-the-clock curfew, an aid worker told AFP.

"We have recovered 20 bodies from the violence so far," the source, speaking on condition of anonymity on Saturday, said about the unrest in the town of Wukari, some 200km from the state capital Jalingo.

    If this is what subscribing to a religion results to...I prefer to live without one. Sad to see that an ideology that's meant to help maintain peace is the cause of conflict.

      LeFifi, you may find it a rather hazardous philosophy to base your decisions on such a brief exposure to the "facts". Sadly, your response is likely to be a very common one. It takes a little more effort to develop an influential opinion - unless you had a different motive for posting this comment? Best wishes in your further efforts to develop a deeper wisdom.

    I just wish all people in the world could be tolerant ! People should have freedom of association!and I thought all religions promoted peace, but everyday you hear of these clashes!

    The Nigerian Leadership keeps avoiding the fact that Nigeria is in its present form not a united country, while they continually skirt around the the truth that breaking up the country into to or more fragment will or may usher in a new era of peace and identity. especially along religious lines. the cost of doing nothing or ignoring this fact, will be a continuous increase in bloodshed of the innocent people of the land.while the leadership flaunt their parachute looking attires around the parliament chambers and deliberate of sharing the daily oil revenues, they must remember they will not escape the Judgement of the Great One for failing to do the right thing.
