There was a decrease in reported incidents of conflict risk and lethal violence in the Niger Delta during the third quarter of 2021, compared to the second quarter of the year (See page 2). Organized criminality and communal conflict decreased by 45% and 32% respectively during the quarter. According to data uploaded to the P4P Peace Map (www.tgpcloud.org/p4p/index.php?m=p4p), criminality, clashes between government security forces and hoodlums, separatist agitation, mob violence, and clashes between cult gangs were the leading causes of lethal violence during the period.

This quarterly tracker looks at the trends and patterns of conflict risk factors and incidents of violence, and the related pressures on peace and stability at the regional, state and local levels. It is not designed as a conflict analysis, but rather it is intended to update stakeholders on patterns and trends of violence. Understanding the deeper conflict drivers, implications, and mitigating options requires a robust participatory qualitative analysis of these trends by local stakeholders, including traditional authorities, political leaders, women, youths, private sector actors, and others in affected communities.
