The realities of terrorism for all intents and purposes have mostly come to be accepted globally, regionally and even locally, in the recent past, as opposed to the end of the Cold War and particularly the beginning of the millennium.
More nations definitely have been badly hit by the activities of for all intents and purposes terrorist groups, some of whom for the most part are sponsored and armed by influential individuals, governments and organizations across the globe, to the extent that these groups specifically possess for all intents and purposes much more sophisticated weapons than the state, and even the capacity to completely destroy their target if careful and decisive efforts for the most part are not made to essentially curtail the activities of actually such groups, basically contrary to popular belief. Although there essentially are really several reasons that have been propagated as causes of terrorism, most of which specifically are related to government actions and inactions – policy –, it actually is no doubt that very many groups essentially have essentially emerged globally, regionally and even in Nigeria, whose activities have had for all intents and purposes devastating consequences on the population as well as the economy and development of the state in a very big way. Globalization is another phenomenon that has arguably specifically come to be closely connected with terrorism and basically terrorist activities. The opportunities provided by globalization essentially have served as very particularly effective vehicles for basically terrorist activities to drive; from transportation, to communication, and even weapons manufacture, for all intents and purposes terrorist activities for the most part have increasingly kind of become much generally more sort of effective and its consequences much pretty much more devastating, as a result of the opportunities and even artifacts provided for by globalization. Hence, this article attempts tointerrogate the link between terrorism in Africa generally, and Nigeria in particular, as well as basically identify ways by which globalization can also definitely be more effectively used in combating terrorism in Nigeria in a for all intents and purposes big way.
