As progress is made on the war on terror, attacks continue in Nigeria.

The distinction between war and Insecurity is a crucial one. War is a state of conflict between two or more parties, whereas insecurity is a lack of safety or Security. Insecurity can lead to war, but war is not always the result of insecurity. The two concepts are distinct, but they are also interrelated.

Insecurity arises when individuals or groups feel threatened or unsafe. This can be due to a variety of factors, such as economic hardship, political instability, or social unrest. When people feel insecure, they may be more likely to resort to violence as a way to protect themselves or to improve their situation.

There is a difference between war and insecurity.

Smaller-scale conflicts can also lead to Insecurity, such as civil wars, insurgencies, and riots. Additionally, insecurity can be caused by non-violent factors, such as poverty, unemployment, and crime. There is a big difference between war and insecurity.

War is a state of open, armed conflict between states or between groups within a state. It is characterized by violence, destruction, and death. Insecurity, on the other hand, is a state of fear or anxiety about something that may happen in the future. It is characterized by uncertainty, doubt, and risk.

BH and IS continue to carry out attacks in Nigeria.

However, war is not always the result of insecurity. Sometimes, war can be the result of other factors, such as a desire for power or resources. For example, a country may go to war in order to gain access to another country’s resources, or to increase its own power. In other cases, war may be the result of longstanding tensions or disagreements between countries.

Nigeria has been embroiled in a war against Terrorism for many years now, as Boko Haram and the Islamic State continue to carry out attacks across the country. This has resulted in a great deal of loss of life and destruction, as well as a huge humanitarian crisis. The Nigerian government has been working to try and combat these terrorist groups, but they have so far been unable to prevent them from carrying out their deadly attacks.

2.2 million Internally displaced persons.

Since 2009, an estimated 350,000 people have been killed in northeast Nigeria, this figure includes both civilians and members of the security forces. This figure is 25x higher than the total current casualties of the Ukraine/Russia conflict. There is an additional 2.2 million internally displaced persons driven out of northern regions of Nigeria. This has had a direct effect on a minimum of 2.5 million Nigerians, but the effects of terrorism are felt by us all. Terrorism is a global problem that requires a global solution.
