Christian farmers in the central Nigerian town of Yelwa massacre hundreds of Muslim cattle herders. The dispute stems from competing claims over fertile farmland. It will, however, turn religious.

One Muslim cattle herder is quoted as saying:

"Allah will avenge us. The pagans have killed our people. There will be religious war in this country."
