Author(s): JAMO Idris Ahmed
Abstract: This study examines the causes of ethno-religious conflicts in Kaduna state and the efficacy of some peace strategies undertaken in the state. Both primary and secondary sources were utilized. Interviews were conducted with religious and traditional rulers in the state using Sample size was obtained using Yamane's (1967; 886) formula, Purposive sampling method. Questionnaires were administered to members of the public across the three Local Governments in the three senatorial districts in the state. Marxian theory was used as the theoretical framework for analysis. Descriptive statistics was used to analyse quantitative data. Findings of the study indicate that government responses to security challenges in Kaduna state have been effective and recommended that such strategies should be improved and maintained. Government should improve grazing reserves in the state and more collaboration with the members of the public in its fight against insecurity.
