The National Emergency Management Agency, NEMA, has disclosed that 204 people lost their lives in the Southern Kaduna crisis.
It is the first time a government agency is providing a figure of the attacks since they began last year.
The crisis between Fulani herdsmen and locals in the area had raged for months before the Kaduna State and the Federal Government saw the need to act.
Several figures have been given to the press by different stakeholders in the crisis.
The Catholic Church had said 808 people were killed as of December 2016, but the Inspector General of Police Ibrahim Idris, disputed this figure.
The Church also said 1,422 houses, 16 Churches, 19 shops, and one primary school were destroyed.
But NEMA North West zonal Coordinator, Musa Ilella said on Friday that the figure was for the two Local Government Areas affected by the crisis- Kafanchan and Chikun.
NEMA said the figure covers October, November and December, 2016 and early January, 2017.
“Four districts in Kafanchan LGA namely: Linte,Goska,Dangoma and Kafanchan town recorded 194 deaths.
“Chikun LGA on the other hand recorded about 10 deaths, making a total of 204 so far,” he said.
He added that there was no record of any injured victim in the hospital.
Governor Nasir El Rufai had said the attackers were foreign Fulani herdsmen, who were avenging past attacks on them and their livestock.
The IGP last week announced that a Squadron of mobile police would be established in Kafanchan to ensure security in the area.
The Nigerian Army also on Thursday announced it had deployed special forces to Southern Kaduna.
