Nigeria Emerges Third Most Terrorised Nation On Earth


Nigeria emerged the third most terrorised nation worldwide in the newly released 2018 Global Terrorism Index .

In the report , which was released, on Wednesday , the index placed Nigeria after war- torn countries like Iraq, Afghanistan and ahead of Syria and Pakistan.

The report also showed that there is a drop in the number of deaths linked to terrorism .

The report said , “ Total deaths from terrorism in Nigeria fell to 1 ,532 in 2017 , a drop of 16 % from the previous year. ”

This year’ s Global Terrorism Index showed a continuing trend of a decline in terrorism, with deaths from terrorism
falling for the third consecutive year , after peaking in 2014 .

However , whilst the GTI finds that the global impact from terrorism is on the decline , it also shows that terrorism is
still widespread , and even getting worse in some regions .

Nigeria has been battling with Boko Haram terrorists in the northeast for years now .
