ABSTRACT

The aim of this research work is to examine and evaluate the effectiveness of Nigeria Army counter terrorism strategies in North-Eastern state of Nigeria, a case study of Operation Zaman Lafiya Dole in Borno State from 2011 - 2018. As the Boko Haram terrorist group wages war on a widening range of targets in Nigeria, the inefficiency of the government has been starkly revealed – along with the urgent need for deep-cutting political and socio-economic reforms to counter a growing sense of insecurity. The north has been particularly hard-hit, with poor governance, omnipresent corruption and worsening social indicators compounding the security problem. Boko Haram, originally a peaceful Islamist movement, has moved progressively towards militant extremism since 2009, regularly attacking Nigerians and foreigners, Christians and Muslims, northerners and even residents of the capital, troops and civilians, in an effort to destabilise the state. For a number of years the group was treated as an internal Nigerian problem. However, Boko Haram’s illicit and armed activities increasingly take place across the country’s borders. When more than 200 girls were kidnapped in the town of Chibok in April 2014, it was clear that neighbouring countries and the international community would need to coordinate their efforts. In addition to launching a direct response to the security threat, the Nigerian government must address a wide range of grievances to eliminate the root causes of the insurgency in the long term. To effectively carry out this research,(200) two hundred questionnaire were administered, (187) one hundred and eighty seven copies were returned and (180) one hundred and eighty copies are used. After critical analysis of the data collected, findings revealed that the Nigerian Army Counter Terrorism Strategies are effectively implemented. The manifestations of a fragile state were seen as factors responsible for the nonoptimal performance of these policies in the course of implementation. The need to strengthen state institutions was given as suggestion on how to make the policies work effectively.
