It is a fundamental fact that Boko Haram has stepped up assaults in the northeast of Nigeria since it rejected government claims of a ceasefire, showing it remains the biggest security threat to Africa's biggest economy and top oil producer.  The series of deadly attacks across many states in the north have made the Boko Haram rebellion the most widespread in Nigeria’s post-independence history). the worry is not just about the debilitation the insurgency is steadily causing  the country and its law-abiding citizens; it is even more so about the demystification of the Nigeria Army that before now has an enviable international reputation for valiance and war-time discipline. Certainly the army has been overstretched by the militancy, to the extent that its morale, collectively, has been seriously shabby.  Fortunately the intensification of terrorist attacks, the frequency of the attacks, the collateral damage to the country and the expanded scope of the activities of insurgents and terrorists have forced the government to understand the dilapidated state of national security and its urgency in recent times, to restore order before Nigeria becomes a failed state. The study shows that the frequency of insurgent attacks has resulted in collateral damage on the peace, stability, development and sovereignty of the state. It finds also that the federal government has not been decisive enough. These place urgent and decisive demand on the government to adopt new management strategy that will address and contain the insurgent and terrorist groups. The multiple dynamic forms/manifestations and highly reticent nature of the insurgency contributed to the impact it had. The study, however, argues and concludes that the insurgence and  national security threats in Nigeria are better understood within the context of the character and the political economy of the country, which encourages and predisposes people to radicalization, extremism and violent crimes, and that of the international system. It is recommended that government at all levels should awake to its responsibilities, ensure adequate funding and training of the security agencies, as well as fortification of the armed forces with sophisticated weapons that will effectively outmatch the firepower of the terrorists’; and tightening of the borders to checking of the influx of people into its territory.
