Nigeria is seriously threatened by Herdsmen and farmers' crisis and thus considered being the main threat affecting the social and economic activities of the nation.  Herdsmen and farmers' clashes have become a major problem to the security and development of Nigeria. Thus, this study examined the socio-cultural effects of herdsmen's attack on farmers’ productivity in Akure North LGA, Ondo. The study adopted descriptive and inferential survey methods and obtained its data from four towns which are Ilado, Ilu Abo, Alayere and Oba Ile respectively. The gender ratio obtained was 65:35 of males and females respectively. Thus, the age range depicts that 29% of the respondents are between the age ranges of 18 years and 29 years, 47% between the range of 30 and 49 years, while 25% are within the age range of 50 years and above. Lastly, the occupation shows that 19% of the respondents are civil servants, 41% are farmers, 11% are traders and while 29% are herders. The findings depict that the major causes of Herdsmen and farmers' clashes in Nigeria are the destruction of crops, harassment of nomads by host youths, disregard for traditional authority, stray cattle, sexual harassment of women by nomads and Indiscriminate bush burning and theft of cattle. I thus recommend that representatives of the host communities and herdsmen should be conveyed under a public forum and involved in the decision making and permitted to take part actively in the planning procedure of restoring peace to most of the affected communities. Keywords: Herdsmen Attack, Farmer’s Productivity, Havoc, Resolution....
