Violent conflict between farmers and herdsmen in Nigeria has assumed a dangerous dimension in recent years causing thousands of lives and economic losses. The reoccurrence of this conflict posed greater challenges and concern among authorities and the citizenry of Nigeria. Many factors have been attributed to this which include among others climate change, competition for scarce land resources, global warming also caused available space water to dry up, the collapse of old traditional negotiation mechanisms between groups, encroachment by farmers, and other government/ nongovernmental activities on cattle routes, etc. The conflict which was prevalent in the northern part of the country has increased spreading throughout Nigeria, most especially some parts of southern states, namely Oyo and Ondo. Therefore, this paper examined the socio-cultural analysis of the conflict in Ondo State using a secondary source of data collection. The paper recommended restoration of traditional negotiation mechanisms between farmers and herdsmen, enhanced harmonious relationship between the groups, synergy among various security agencies, establishment and resuscitation of abandoned cattle ranching reserves, the establishment of a joint farmers-herdsmen forum to facilitate proper dissemination of information towards curbing the conflict.
