The Roles of Federal Government and Security Challenges of Boko Haram in Nigeria

Charles Chukwuma Nwoba, Odoh Stella


The thrust of this paper is to know the roles of Federal Government towards insurgency of Boko Haram. It had been a source of worry to commentators, observers and scholars on insecurity vis-à-vis activities of Islamic extremists in the North-east. The area had witnessed wanton destruction of lives and property which had been on increase. It had affected socio- economic and political life of the people which led to Declaration of State of Emergency. International Organizations, Human Rights activists, individuals, had been pointing accusing fingers on Federal Government, on inability to Stop Human Rights Violation. This work x-rays the roles of Federal Governments to end the insurgency. The paper argues, if unguided utterances, derogatory statements and hidden interests are not thoroughly checked, instead of ameliorating, will be adding salt to injury. And advocated for honesty and dialogue for unity in Nigeria.
