The Most Dangerous Cities in Nigeria

Nigeria has recently seen a succession of societal unrest in many regions of the nation, particularly in the North Eastern section of the nation, where the Boko Haram threat thrives. The Boko haram insurgency began in 2010 and has had a negative impact on socioeconomic activity in the North East.

Adamawa state

Yola is the capital of Adamawa state, which is situated in Nigeria's northwestern region. The boko haram threat has turned Adamawa state into one of Nigeria's most unsafe states. In Adamawa state, Boko haram has recently assaulted communities, marketplaces, and churches. Over 10000 Nigerians are already slain by Boko Haram, who have also damaged assets worth millions of dollars in Adamawa state.

Yobe state

Yobe state, with Damaturu as its capital, is situated in Nigeria's northwestern region. Yobe state may be classified as one of the most hazardous areas in Nigeria, with hundreds of people brutally killed and a succession of bomb blasts in Yobe state neighbourhoods and markets. In the Yobe state of Nigeria, Boko Haram has murdered over 7000 people.

Bauchi State

Since 2012, boko haram has been a prominent focus in Bauchi. Following a series of successful attacks on citizens of Bauchi State, former President Goodluck Jonathan imposed a curfew on the state in order to combat the boko haram threat. Thousands of people have been slain by boko haram in Bauchi, though.

Kano State

The boko haram incident in Kano state resulted in one of Nigeria's greatest boko haram fatalities. Thousands of Nigerians have been slain by Boko Haram, who have also damaged houses worth millions of dollars in Kano. Boko haram assaulted Kano state in 2012 in retaliation for Boko haram members killed by the Nigerian Army in the war against terrorism, which resulted in the deaths of over 150 people. Boko haram has carried out attacks on a variety of targets including villages, markets, churches, and mosques.

Borno stateĀ 

Borno state is at the top of the list, with a string of successful assaults, deaths, and kidnappings of Borno residents. The boko haram threat has claimed the lives of most people in Borno state. 219 pupils from Chibok secondary school in Borno state were taken in 2014 andĀ  all of them are yet to be discovered. Nigeria's government has relocated its defence headquarters to Borno state in an attempt to fight Boko Haram.
