Research output: Book/ReportBook


Nigeria is the most populous nation in Africa, made up of multiple ethnic groups, cultures, and languages. She is a nation with world-acclaimed writers, scientists, and physicians who have created record breaking and award-winning contributions to their fields. Sadly, this great and mighty nation is plagued and attacked almost every week by militants from a deadly, brutal, barbarous, vicious, and dangerous sect called Boko Haram. Boko Haram is the most dangerous terrorist group in Nigeria, the actions of which have led to the injury and/or death of many people. This group evolved from a non-violent nuisance group to a brutal, cruel, and savage one. Boko Haram's activities have had and still have negative, destructive, and devastating effects on different aspects of Nigeria's economy. The impact of Boko Haram's terrorism on security, health, finance, tourism, and education in Nigeria and its people is the topic of focus in this book. Furthermore, the Boko Haram sect is a leading group that breaches the rights of children. It is common knowledge that the children are the future of any nation, and they need to be trained properly for a promising future. Ultimately, the individuals or groups breaching the rights of children need to be punished appropriately, for a better and glorious future for the children of Nigeria.
