Poverty is a subject of discussion that has given concerns to the nation of the world, and it presents great damage by being a significant obstacle to the growth of the economy. It has eaten deep into the political, social, health and physical well being of individuals that it left the majority of the populace destitute and at the same time deprived them the essentials of life like care, proper feeding, access to good food and medical facilities. When poverty grows at an alarming rate like what we have in the country, it brings about war, conflict, terrorism, prostitution and armed robbery amidst other negative vices. This study aimed at examining the care of the poor as a way of inhibiting war. Various indicators suggest that poverty is a significant obstacle to Nigeria’ s socio-economic development. The concept of poverty was critically and adequately examined with definitions from diverse researchers about what poverty is and the indices that are used in measuring poverty. The study ex-rayed alarming facts and statistics about poverty, causes of poverty, links between poverty and war and care for the poor. Some of the recommendations are that efforts should be intensified to care for the rural populace as they are mostly deprived of basic amenities and infrastructural facilities like good roads, schools, hospitals, pipe-borne water among others. The Federal Government of Nigeria should do all within their powers to venture into activities that would improve the economy which would in turn help in the reduction of poverty, invariably increasing the care for the poor and the less privileged. When all these are done, it inhibits war in society.
