Here’s Why the 2023 Global Terrorism Report Says Nigeria Is Getting Safer

Posted by

The founder of Leadership-by-Data and well-known data analyst Babajide Ogunsanwo contends that a number of factors played a role in Nigeria receiving a high-security rating from the Global Institute for Economics and Peace/Vision of Humanity.

The current service chiefs’ effective collaboration in reducing Boko Haram attacks in Nigeria’s North East region, particularly in Borno State, led to the country receiving its highest security rating in ten years.

Since their appointment in 2021, the current service chiefs have pursued the fight against terrorism in a non-traditional manner.

Although Nigeria is safer than it has been in more than ten years, things could quickly go south if the nation loses its way.

If sociopolitical tensions worsen, kidnapping for ransom may increase dramatically.

In a recent interview with Channels TV, Ogunsanwo revealed that the 2023 Global Terrorism Index, which was published by Vision of Humanity, the foremost organization that monitors terrorist attacks and fatalities caused by terrorism, provides a thorough analysis of international terrorist attacks in Nigeria and other nations.

120 terrorism cases (incidents), as opposed to the 214 cases recorded in 2021, were reported in Nigeria in 2022, the report claims. Nigeria last saw such advancement more than twelve years ago.
