Gombe: The Second Safest State in Nigeria

The video on the left is from a TV news broadcast in Gombe City at the beginning of November. When we started in Gombe 6 years ago, the state had significant levels of Boko Haram violence. Today, the violence has significantly reduced. The violence caused by cattle herders on crop farmers is still an issue, but as you would hear in the video, we are working to address that as well. The governor of the state gave OMNIA its Peace and Security Award for the role of Interfaith Peacemaker Teams in reducing violence in the state. Click here to read more.
