This research was initiated to assess the challenges Nigeria is facing in the fight against Boko Haram Insurgency in the North East zone dating from 2009-2015. The objective of the research minorly was to determine the origin, activities, method of operation and targets of Boko Haram and majorly to access the challenges and prospects of Nigeria in their bid to quell the Boko Haram insurgency. Using content analysis and statistical method of enquiry on the budget provisions by the Ministry of Defence, the inability of Nigeria to identify the strategy of Boko Haram and its counter-attack effect and also inadequacy of equipment and logistics as the hypothesis as well as other challenges were examined. Evidence from the research shows that not only has the activities of Boko Haram affected Nigerians negatively, but has indeed undermined the very existence of the political entity called Nigeria. Based on finding from the research, it was reasonably concluded that Nigeria should properly keep tabs on the budget spending for the fight against the Boko Haram insurgent group, so high standard and efficient equipment and logistics can be acquired, and Nigeria’s efforts can be noticed rather than the corruption allegations made by the military personnel. It was recommended among others that, good governance should be encouraged, and also a new strategy based on intelligence gathering, should be adopted to enable the Nigerian government fight effectively as well as motivation incentives, uplifting of the spirits and courage of the combatants and transparency of the spending of the budget should be visible to the public. This should be properly put in place and maintained to ensure that the Boko Haram crisis can be managed and in the long run eradicated.
