Insecurity is debilitating to the economic development of many less developed economies especially in a country like Nigeria. The presence of insecurity in any environment constitutes threat to lives and properties, hinders business activities, and discourages local and foreign investors, all of which stifles and retards socio-economic development of a country. In Nigeria there has been rising wave of insecurity since the country attained independence in 1960. In fact, in the last fifteen years, intra state conflicts have by far outnumbered international conflicts causing several millions of deaths including civilians and annihilating basic public services, state institutions and generating extensive poverty among the populace. This rising wave has not abated but has assumed a dangerous dimension which is even threatening the corporate existence of the country as one geographical entity. The examples of Libya, Egypt, Ivory Coast, are common place, and Nigeria must not be allowed to slide to that level especially in view of its own experiences between 1967 and 1970. Therefore, the elimination of these threats should be the number one goal of governments in Nigeria at all levels as the country cannot achieve any significant development amidst insecurity and violence.
