ABSTRACT


          Boko Haram figuratively implies that western for non-Islamic education is a sin, is a very controversial Nigeria militant group that seeks for the imposition of sharia law in the entire northern states of Nigeria. The hierarchical structure of the group is not presently well defined. The official name of the group id jamaiatu Ahlissunnalidda ―awaiwal jihad, which in Arabic translate to ―people committed to the propagation of the prophet’s teaching and jhadl literally therefore the group means ―Association of sunn’s for the propagation of Islamic and for Holy war (jihad) and Islamized northern stats of Nigeria and probably conquer the entire country through jihad. So far, the group has been waging the war successfully in it area of stronghold.


          Boko Haram made its presence known in 2004, in Yobe states, and by 2011, it made its presence known to the global community by bombing the United Nations Headquarters in Abuja, especially in the last two years, it has willfully attacked hundreds of buildings and killing many innocent Nigerians. In spite of the calamity the group has caused the government seems not to know how to clip the group‘s wings. In this research work, therefore, effort will be made to philosophically and legally appraise the group activities and its implications on Nigerian National integration. We will look at the social-political changes in the Northern Nigeria, and possible suggest solutions that will assist in curtailing their activities in Nigeria
