Rural communities in Taraba state, eastern Nigeria, were Friday on indefinite lockdown as the authorities tried to contain mounting violence between cattle herders and farmers.At least 10 people were killed in several days of violence in Taraba last week into the weekend, while some 24 lost their lives in the central state of Benue in the last few days.Misal said there were reports that the violence was spreading but gave no further details.Last year, the cattle herders union claimed more than 700 people were killed in violence, although the authorities gave a much lower death toll.
