War Economy of Ethno-Religious Crises: A Study of The Wukari Crises of Taraba State, Nigeria
No protracted violent struggle can survive without a war economy that pays for its existential needs and costly expenses. Therefore, conflict resolutions and management experts and other stakeholders must consider the sources that are providing the funds for vicious conflicts. It has been acknowledged that the dislodgment of the war economy of any conflict helps to suffocate its progress severally. This study looked at a protracted ethno-religious crisis’ war economy critically, using field research methodologies. The study identified all the major sources of the war economy of the crisis and recommended among others that the sources of the war economy must be dislocated holistically immediately so that the re- occurring Wukari ethno-religious crisis will be halted to a great degree.
