Nigeria is the most populous country in Africa, and one of the key economies of the continent.
However, it is a country known for almost chronic state instability, military coups in the first decades of its
independent existence, as well as recurrent security issues including terrorism, kidnapping, large-scale
corruption, armed crimes, and so on. The Boko Haram movement has been a subject of multiple studies out of which articles and books were published. The current book written by a group of experienced scholars,
