This publication was developed by Alliances for Africa (AfA) and was made possible by the men, women and young people in communities who have experienced various kinds and degrees of mass atrocities for the purpose of this study and in consideration of the South Eastern Nigeria, was categorized into atrocities by state actors, pastoralists’ and farmers’ conflicts and inter-communal clashes. You created a clearer picture of the situations and we now have a better understanding of the realities, your concerns and opinions. Thank you.
To OSIWA, for the financial support to implement this process and give voice to the people who have faced challenges of atrocities and have hardly expressed themselves and seen the possibility of preventing future experiences through implementation of the outcomes of this research. We remain grateful.
Special appreciation is sent to the Executive Director of Alliances for Africa, Ms. Iheoma Obibi and her team Blessing Duru, Ihuoma Chidire and Chioma Igwe, who equipped us with the relevant background information, and provided seamless support throughout the process of this research.
This research would not have been possible without the support of Dr. Jude Ohanele and Lesley Agams with their professional insight on the issues and types of mass atrocities in the South Eastern Nigeria, emphasizing the gender tilt to the issue. Not forgetting Nnennaya Enyinna-Eneremadu who led the field research team with support from Felxfame Omovie Enisire.
