Nigeria is plagued by various kinds of violent conflicts. These conflicts include ethnic, religious, social, economic, political, and many other forms of conflicts. Violent conflicts in Nigeria have remained unabated. Violent conflicts have many consequences in Nigeria. But very often the consequences on the environment are ignored as if the natural world does not matter. This paper using an analytic method argues that it is not enough to take the social consequences of violent conflicts into consideration. Their impact on the environment should be taken into consideration. If this is not done conflicts in Nigeria will remain unabated. It is imperative to taken nature into consideration. The paper finds and concludes that if an ecological consciousness that values the natural world is cultivated, it will help in eradicating violent conflicts.
