The level of violence and crises that Nigeria is experiencing presently under the auspices of religious crises brings to question, the initial tenets of religion in terms of guaranteeing and preaching morality, tolerance, accountability, sympathy for one another, and good neighborliness which are the essential ingredients of peaceful co-existence. Consequently, this study attempted a retrospective examination of religious crises and human abuse in Nigeria. Attempts were made to underscore the genesis, factors, incidence, trend, and effects of religious crises on human beings. Recommendations were made to forestall the occurrence of such crises in Nigeria.
