On behalf of the Editorial Team, I bring to you with great joy the Maiden
Volume of the Satiru International Journal of Peace and Security Studies
(SIJPSS) of the Department of History, Sokoto State University, SokotoNigeria. For over a decade now the Nigerian State has been seriously
engulfed by disastrous internal and external security challenges. The
scholarly ideas and debates at the Department on how to unravel the
security riddles in 21st century Nigeria were intrumental to the
emergence of this journal. This double blind reviewed journal will
present original and quality research papers twice a year, from scholars
across the universe.
In this first volume, we present thirteen scholarly articles. The edition
opens with Professor Adoyi Onoja’s work entitled, “Understanding
Peace and Security as Critical Factors in National Development”. Other
articles that makes up the edition are; “Further Notes on Claims and
Counter Claims on the 1906 Satiru Episode”, “Nigeria and the Burden
of Dysfunctional Policing, 1999-2015”, “Factors Subverting Operation
Lafiya Dole in the Fight Against Boko-Haram Insurgency in the NorthEast”, Media Framing and the Reportage of Boko-Haram Insurgency in
Nigeria”, “Boko Haram Insurgency and Economic Development in
North-East Nigeria”, “Reconstruction of Education in Ogbemudia’s
Years: A Study of Esan Civil War Experience”, “Implications of Insecurity
on Development Administration in Nigeria: An Assessment”, “A Reassessment of Warfare System in Kasar Kabi (Kebbi), 1515-1903”, Gender
Inclusion and the Nigeria Police Force: Community Policing in
Perspective”, “Boko-Haram: An Archetype of Guerrilla Warfare in
Nigeria, 2002-2014”, “The Geopolitics of ‘Zoning Principle’ in Nigeria’s
Electoral Process: Implications for International Economic Relations”
and “Nigeria-The Gambia Military Relations, 1939-2016”. The general
comment that may be passed on the articles is that they are essentially
novel, insightful and robust. Thus, they survived the review process
and are published out of a plethora of submissions.
While expressing gratitude to the various authors for their
contributions, it is hoped this maiden issue will be of great value to
students, scholars, statesmen, security experts, policy makers and other
readers with interest in security discourses.
Welcome to the Department where it all begins!
