The ‘Invisible Violence’ Project

Violence is not always reported by the media, especially in remote rural areas that are difficult to access. Hence, in 8 years (2006 - 2014), NigeriaWatch did not record any report of fatal incidents in 23 of the 774 Local Government Areas (LGAs) of the Nigerian Federation. As at 1st November 2014, these were: Udung Uko and Urue-Offong/Oruko (Akwa Ibom), Kwaya Kusar (Borno), Nafada (Gombe), Auyo, Gagarawa, Kaugama and Yankwashi (Jigawa), Ingawa and Matazu (Katsina), Sakaba (Kebbi), Bassa, Igalamela-Odolu and Mopa-Muro (Kogi), Toto (Nassarawa), Ifedayo (Osun), Gudu and Gwadabaw (Sokoto), Ussa (Taraba), Karasuwa, Machina, Nguru and Yunusari (Yobe). There are two possibilities in this regard: whether some LGAs are very peaceful, or they are not covered by the media. The following studies thus investigate “invisible” violence.
