To ask Her Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of reports that communities in Plateau State, Nigeria, who have been victims of attacks by Fulani herder militia have been searched for weapons though the perpetrators of such attacks have not.

We are deeply concerned about the escalating inter-communal violence across Nigeria including in Plateau State. The situation is complex and access to information is limited. We do not have information about which groups have been searched for weapons. We welcome President Buhari's strong condemnation of these attacks and his commitment to bring the perpetrators to justice. We call for solutions that meet the needs of all affected communities and prevent further violence.
