Abstract

 

For upwards of seven years now Nigeria has been under the pressure of Boko Haram insurgency. In turn, this has elicited attention across the international community, especially the scholarly world. In a bid to proffer solution, research lights have been beamed on the group which has resulted in a myriad of academic papers, research findings and more. Yet, in spite of vigorous intellectual efforts to reach the roots of this hydra-headed problem, the end to the fight against Boko Haram insurgency does not appear to be in sight. This raises the curiosity as to the effectuality of the studies so far carried out on Boko Haram and to what degree those studies have helped in understanding the situation. Thus, in manner most akin to a review and in a five-part piece, we look at the various schools of thought that have emanated from intellectual works on Boko Haram. We came to the conclusion that much as robust studies have been made about the sect, there is yet more to be done.
