What's the price of cattle? To Fulani Herdsman in Jos, Nigeria, the answer is human lives. This weekend at least five more people died. According to allafrica.com, three herdsmen tried to claim some cattle but were instead butchered on Saturday. Because violence begets violence, some Hausa retaliated with their own murderous actions, killing at least two people. Lord, have mercy.
