The paper examines the connection of migration and climate change-two of the most important processes of recent time. With much to be explored on migration topics in which the analysis of facts are frequently biased by many assumptions, clichés  or  infact  fantasies. It takes a look at how a rigorous approach to this phenomenon actually faces many challenges, including extreme diversity of concrete forms and continuous transformations, making any attempts at projections  rendering  it with  much unexpectations. It  dwells  on  nomadization ,a migratory form. The study describes the incessant resource conflicts  witnessed in  Nigeria  with indigenous farmers,local  and foreign cattle rearers- (herdsmen ) who ply Nigerian  territory at will with the attendant loss of lives,properties ,destruction of farm produce  environmental degradation and now cases of kidnapping. It reveals the relevance of migration (and translocality ) for adaptation to climate change, how the nomads are able to break almost all territorial barriers. Getting their families resided in the country with established business and trading partnership, work  to improve livelihood in a country that provides relatively easy access and receptive to nomadic migrants entrepreneurial spirit or their specific skills.Having maintained historical alliances,a shared language and religion.
