Ethno-Nationalism and Identity Conflicts in Nigerian History: The Niger Delta Situation to 2012

Atei Mark Okorobia, Stephen Temegha Olali

Abstract


While the Niger Delta remains one of the most studied regions of Nigeria, its contributions to the history of ethno-nationalism and identity conflicts have not been adequately documented. This paper explores the roots, manifestations and consequences of ethno-nationalism and identity conflicts in Nigeria, with emphasis on the Niger Delta region since pre-colonial times.
