Abstract: This study was conducted between the months of August-December 2017 to examine the different forms of ethno-religious conflicts and local development in Nigeria and also create awareness on the effects of ethno-religious conflicts and what should be done about it to avoid it. Ethno—religious and other forms of sectarian struggles and conflicts are on the rise recently in Nigeria. The return of democracy with accompanying respect for fundamental human rights seemed to have unleashed all the tensions that have accumulated over the ye~rs. Of recent, deepest attachments have tended to shift more in favour of ethnic—based tendencies as ethnicity and religiocentrism occupies more space in the social and political landscape of the Nigerian society. This trend has been intensified and made more complicated by unpopular policies and bad governance in the past and even at this present time. As the researcher I believe that sincere governmental schemes and efforts must be established by the government to achieve social and distributive justice for all people in the country. Merits, qualification and competence in or for a particular position must be respected. For where there is justice there will be peace and where there is peace, there will be no ethno-religious conflicts. In fact, the control of ethno-religious conflicts in Nigeria will be among other social vices like corruption, litany of politically motivated killings, prostitution, examination malpractice, kidnapping, terrorism, rigging of elections etc. will go far in moving the country forward. A complete and total implementation of the above recommendations would go a long way in the control of the incessant ethno-religious conflicts in Kaduna s1ate and in most of the northern states of the country.
