The main focus of this study is to examine the effect of banditry on the farming system using Konshisha local government in Benue State as the case study. Residents of the farming communities in Konshisha forms the population of the study. Survey research design was implored for the study, using convenience sampling method, 200 respondents were selected. Questionnaire was issued and 184 was retrieved and validated for the study. Hypothesis was tested using Chi-Square statistical tool(SPSS). Findings from the study revealed that banditry has a significant effect on the farming system and that banditry attacks have a significant impact on food security and can lead to an increase in the prices of food items. The study, therefore, recommends farmers should be enlightened on the need to desist from planting crops such as maize, millet, and sorghum which will provide cover to bandits to enable them to come close to village settlements undetected to rest during the daytime and attack in the evening or night time and also the Federal, State and Local Governments including the communities should come together to hold a conference with a view to mapping out strategies to end banditry in Benue state and other regions in Nigeria where there are bandit attacks....
