The catastrophic terrorism unleashed by the Islamic sect popularly known as “BokoHaram,” has become a nation-wide
concern in Nigeria in recent years. Almost everyday television broadcast, shows, newspapers, magazines and internet
websites run and re-run pictures of dramatic acts of violence carried out by this ferocious sect. It is often hard not to be
scared when we see gruesome pictures of people killed or maimed byBokoHaram in office buildings, public buses or
trains, and on the streets. The federal government seems weak in maintaining law and order in Nigeria and lacks a viable
strategy to contain the Islamic sect from carrying out its atrocities. Nigeria seems to meet the criterion of a “failed states”
such as Somalia, Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan and Yemen, where terrorist groups are often able to operate freely, plan
sophisticated attacks and stockpile weapons—not because the government officials sponsor them but simply because
they lack the political will to bring them to book.
The federal government, with the support of the international community, has launched many initiatives to combat the
threat posed by BokoHaram. Indeed, considerable amount of money and political capital have been invested in new and
continuing programmes to enhance security and contain the threat of BokoHaram in...
...BokoHaram is winning so far in NigeriaNigeria has ever faced series of security threatening challenges, but Bokoharam is the most powerful sect so far. The sect claims responsibility for several bombings and snip activities in the northern and central Nigeria, thereby placing the nation at the threshold of disintegration this paper describes briefly how the Terrorists use murder, kidnapping, and bombings to pursue a political agenda. Then will introduce the rise of BokoHaram, a radical Islamist sect who is fighting to overthrow the government in Nigeria and create an Islamic state. Many questions in mind like who are this group? Who’s funding it? How they treat their prisoners?
The government has been unable to put an end to it, will see at the end if he gets any help from other nations?
In past years, most people thought terrorism is only happening in the Middle East countries but now terrorism is every were, even in the most powerful countries. Terrorism is more like terrible and brutal violence with only one purpose of terrified the people. It has two main purposes, to put pressure on the authorities, to spread fear and uncertainty first between the people; their action involves serious violence against a person or serious damage to property, endangers a person's life. Second, they interfere to disrupt an...
SOCIAL MOVEMENT & SOCIALCHANGE

Terrorism in West Africa, Boko Haram’s Evolution, Strategy and Affiliations
Since the emergence of Boko-Haram as a significant local terrorist group in the West African state of Nigeria, its operational reach has brought about one of the most daunting challenges for the regional security of this area. The effectiveness of their capability to operate and hit targets in a country that is said to be one of Africa’s security powers remains to be a security nightmare for anti-terrorism experts. Amid a large number of bombings, kidnappings and assassinations, several variations around the group’s ideology, strategies, techniques and linkages have brought challenges to the region.
In North Africa Al-Qaida is operating in smaller groups, the linking of the two group’s poses a significant challenge in the area. This paper will discuss the ideology, strategies and methods links BokoHaram and their affiliation to Al-Qaeda.
History and Background of BokoHaram
Onuoha (2010) attributes the new space for Islamists extremism in Nigeria with the return of democracy in 1999. The return of democracy also brought a rise in kidnapping, militancy, robberies and religious conflicts. Religious violence increased in the wake of challenges to human...

20 reasons why BokoHaram crisis may not end soon
Posted about 161 days ago | 4 comments
BokoHaram crisis started like any other protest, but it seems to have come to stay. Why is it difficult for security agencies to crush the sect in few well-coordinated operations? It is not clear, but below are some of the reasons.
1. Extrajudicial killings: This is the primary source of the violence. At least, that is what the sect has continued to harp upon. Its leader, Mohammed Yusuf, was killed while in police custody, and many members of the group have been killed by security personnel in a manner that has kept human rights organisations raising alarm.
2. Access to lethal weapons: The sect seems to have unfettered access to deadly weapons, including bomb-making materials in spite of the closure of Nigeria’s borders and the alertness of security forces.
3. Detention of suspects without trial: This is another argument by BokoHaram. They claim hundreds of their members are detained in various police cells and prisons without trial. There was a speculation that government may have built a special detention camp for arrested members of the sect. Boko...
