The contemporary Nigerian society has been progressively recording the manifestation of multi-dimensional conflicts. These conflicts that are weighing down the sovereign state differ mainly in scope, nature, time and environment where they manifest today when compared to the nature and character of conflicts in the traditional societies that make-up the modern Nigerian State. Consequently, this work re-presents the historic conflict management and peace building strategies that were traditionally used by our forefathers. The paper calls for the hybridization and integration of these strategies with modern scientific-based methods of promoting sustainable national peace and development in Nigeria.
