The purpose of this book is to examine the growth and activities of the Boko Haram sect in Nigeria with the aim of suggesting a strategy for resolving the crisis. The book will focus on the evolution of the sect and the enabling environment that served to support its growth especially in the North East region of Borno, Yobe, and Adamawa States of Nigeria. This work will demonstrate that the present response of the government which is more focused on addressing the symptoms of terrorism, remains inadequate, and requires a strategy that addresses the root cause and symptoms of terrorism to resolve the crisis. Such a strategy involves a government-wide approach whereby the military expands its operations to limit the operating space for the sect, and the government simultaneously addresses the root causes of the crisis as well as the conditions that facilitated the growth of Boko Haram in North-Eastern Nigeria.
