Eniye Mienye


The study started by giving an account of a brief history of land situations in the country Nigeria and subsequently land conflicts in Bayelsa State. Information on land matters was sought across the State and analyzed. Bayelsa State is a new state in the country and is undergoing serious land troubles which need not to be ignored. Various land troubles existed across the State for which some have been settled but not amicably resolved. There is no local government which has not one time or the other encountered land problems. The activities of land conflicts are more concentrated in the State Capital while the riverine areas are having such impacts on a lesser occurrence, more troublesome manner and of more magnitude in a communal way.  The study was concluded by making recommendations on various findings.
