This paper will examine the impact of boko haram on business entrepreneurship environment in Nigeria. Since the emergence of the group in 2002, the business environment has not been conducive for business related activities due to bombings and attacks on the people. An exploratory method of data collection was carried out using secondary data such as news papers, journals and online information. the findings revealed that businesses no longer takes place in the affected areas such as the northeast part of Nigeria because markets were closed, banking services not rendered or hours of services reduced. The paper then recommends that the source of income; training; and supply of weapons to Boko Haram be blocked by the Nigerian government and also engage in human security such as job creation; and provision of infrastructural facilities so as to combat the activities of the sect and thereby creating enabling environment for business and entrepreneurship to flourish.
