Religious extremism and political violence in Nigeria: the case of Boko Haram
Musa, Okanda Abdushakur (2016) Religious extremism and political violence in Nigeria: the case of Boko Haram. MSc dissertation, University of Portsmouth.
Boko Haram has been a major terrorist group that has plagued Nigeria since 2009. They have achieved global recognition through the increasing frequency of their attacks. Significantly, the abduction of over 200 students at Government College in Chibok has raised the importance, attention and seriousness attached to their practice. They are a religious extremist group that has metamorphosed into a political ground. The understanding of how they move from religious motivation to political motivation together with the counter-terrorism strategy adopted was the focus of this research.
