Nigerian authorities are planning to lay murder charges against 49 people accused of involvement in the massacre of villagers at the weekend.
Nigerian police say most of those facing charges of murder are Muslim militants from the Fulani ethnic group.
It is alleged that gangs armed with machetes attacked predominantly Christian villages near the city of Jos, hacking to death women and children.
Initial reports claimed as many as 500 people had been killed, but local police now say just more than 100 people died.
The region remains tense and hundreds of people have fled their home fearing further attacks.
Soldiers are enforcing a dusk-to-dawn curfew in and around Jos, which has increasingly become a flashpoint for sectarian violence.
