This Book examines the general challenges of insurgency with reference to Boko Haram by tracing its emergence, discussing its rise and proposing the ways and means of ending it.
The Book exposes the author’s deep knowledge of the subject, not only as a Conflict Management Scholar but as a person who served for several years on Presidential, State and Emirate Committees on Boko Haram Insurgency, Livestock Rustling and other security challenges. Those services enabled him to have direct contacts and discussions with insurgents and rustlers and with security personnel. As a senior member of the Traditional Institution, the author has the unique added advantage of obtaining information on security challenges from the grassroots, some of which could not be obtained even by security personnel. The Book therefore contains rare, privileged, authentic and important information
