The UK Government condemns all incidents of violence against civilians in Nigeria. This affects all faith and non-faith communities, including Christians. The Strengthening Peace and Resilience in Nigeria programme (SPRING) will help Nigeria address the root causes of conflict in the Middle Belt and beyond by supporting and shifting incentives of stakeholders, so they are more willing and able to respond to conflict, security, justice and natural resource management challenges in target areas.
