Abstract

Conflicts are important factors in most economic decisions at global, national and sub-national levels. However , conflict activities data are most often aggregated at the national level, which does not match with the foundation theories of conflict, and thereby complicating empirical tests(3). Recently, large data collection projects came on board to collect disaggregated events-level conflict data in certain countries, and one of these is the Armed Conflict Events and Location Database (ACLED)(6). This data article describes micro-level conflict activities relating to Nigeria, which was extracted from the ACLED. Nigeria is known to have witnessed its fair share of civil conflicts among sub-Saharan African countries, which includes the first modern warfare in the subcontinent âĂŞ the Nigeria (versus Biafra) civil war (4). The large culturally and ethnically heterogeneous Nigerian population continues to generate latent frictions and manifest conflicts. In recent times, a number of deadly militias has sprang up within the country, notable among them are the Boko Haram and pastoral herders whose activities are recognised globally (5).
