See Nigeria's Position On The List Of 10 Most Terrorized Nations

After the September 11 attacks against the United States of America, the world has continued to record various levels oI terrorism in many countries across the globe. The Global Terrorism Index (GTI) is an annual report showing the list of countries most affected by the activities of terrorist groups. According to, the last report was published by the Institute for Economics and Peace (IEP) in November 2020. Below is a screenshot of the name of countries that made up the top ten list.

As shown in the image above, Afghanistan topped the list with a 9.592 score. Iraq, Nigeria, Syria, and Somalia occupied the 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th positions respectively. While Yemen, Pakistan, India, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, and the Philippines occupied the 6th to 10th position respectively.

Nigeria appearing among the top three must be seen by every well-meaning Nigerian as a serious source of concern. In the early 2000s, Nigerians use to hear about activities of terrorist groups in other nations through the news media. But the story has changed today, the once peaceful Nigeria has become a major stronghold of various notorious terrorist groups, to the extent that the nation now ranks third in the list of most terrorized nations in the world. 

As a Nigerian, how do you feel about this reality and what do you think is the way forward?
