Created in 2006 and based at the University of Ibadan, NigeriaWatch monitors violence and lethal conflicts in Nigeria. In a country where there are few criminal statistics, it helps to compensate for the lack of reliable data by crosschecking various sources of information. NigeriaWatch quantifies and qualifies homicides and violent deaths, including accidents. The objective is to identify trends for policy making and early warning systems.
