Population and Communal Land Conflicts Nexus in Rural Communities of Nigeria: The Case of Obubra Local Government Area of Cross River State, Nigeria
AbstractThis article examines the nexus between population and communal land conflicts in rural communities of Nigeria, using Obubra Local Government Area of Cross River State as a case of study. It examines relevant literature and using a sample of five hundred and twelve (512) respondents across all walks of life, and with the use of linear regression analysis, the finding revealed a nexus between population and communal land conflicts. It therefore recommended the encouragement of small family sizes in the rural areas and the need for poverty alleviation programmes to be focused on the rural poor as a way of diverting pressure and conflict on land for subsistence.
