PREFACE

This study focuses on the Origin and Development of Ethnic Militia in the Wukari Area

1945-2005.The main objective of the study is to analyze and discuss the major factors that

encouraged the emergence of ethnic militia in the area of study. The study shows that

evolution and growth of the ethnic militia in Nigeria and Wukari area in particular. It also
