ABSTRACT

The over-riding aim of this research work is to examine the security threat in Nigeria, a case study of Nyaya and Jikwoyi communities in Abuja Municipal Area Council.

To effectively carry out this research, data was collected in form of questionnaire from respondents who lives in Nyaya and Jikwoyi communities. Two hundred (200) questionnaires was administered, one hundred and sixty eight (168) was returned and one hundred and fifty (150) copies was used. After critical analysis of the data collected, findings revealed that the security threat in Nigeria cannot be over emphasized in reducing the rate of violence and insurgency in Nigeria.

As a result of insecurity, we should be more sophisticated in managing our security challenges, and avoid handling the issues in reactionary ways or adopting impulsive measures and strategies that fail to address the fundamental problems on a sustainable basis. Agreed, we have security challenges. Every nation does have. However, it does not mean that Nigeria is on the brink of collapse because of our security challenges, as is being insinuated in some quarters. Why do we think that some nations like China, Japan, India and the European countries are stable and flourishing despite their huge population and challenges? It is because they can feed their population and at the same time grow their economy to foster their national security. Nigeria can also do the same. Let there be food on the table of every Nigerian first and foremost, to reduce the tension and scrambling across the nation.
