According to Daily Post, Alhaji Muhammadu Abubakar, the Sultan of Sokoto, has said that for terrorism and radicalization to be tackled in Nigeria, there is a need to have an improved mass education system in the country among the citizens.

It was reported that he has also identified a lack of knowledge, stressing that most of the perpetrators (terrorists) turned the true knowledge upside down and interpreted it the best way they understood simply because they lacked the requisite knowledge thereby causing security challenges in the country.

The high rate of unemployment in the northern region also contributed to insecurity because most of the youth are not employable due to lack of education.

One way the federal government can reduce insurgency is by creating social programmes that will encourage more people in the north to get educated in schools.

Sokoto state should also emulate how Jigawa State Government is planning to reduce insurgency by educating nomads which is a vital role in solving most of the insecurity challenges in the country.
