BATTERED IMAGE!!! For sixth time, Nigeria ranks 3rd most terrorized country

Nigeria has for the sixth consecutive time, since 2015, ranked the third most terrorized country in the world.
This is according to a report by the Global Terrorism Index (GTI) released on Wednesday, 25th of November.

The report showed that Nigeria witnessed an increase in Boko Haram attacks on military targets last year.
 
Afghanistan is top on the list, followed by Iraq.

Syria, Somalia, and Yemen are ranked fourth, fifth, and sixth respectively.


However, the report showed that terror-related incidents fell by 27% in the same period.

This was attributed to a significant reduction in violence attributed to killer herdsmen.

"Despite an overall decline in terrorism, Boko Haram, Nigeria's deadliest terrorist group, recorded an increase in terrorist activity mainly targeted at civilians. Terror-related deaths and incidents attributed to Boko Haram in Nigeria increased by 25 and 30% respectively from the prior year.

"In 2019, Boko Haram carried out 11 suicide bombings causing 68 fatalities. Suicide bombings accounted for 6% of all terror-related incidents by Boko Haram in 2019, marking an 89% decline from their peak in 2017," the report read.

Other countries among the 10 most impacted by terrorism are Pakistan (seventh), India (eighth), Democratic Republic of the Congo (ninth), and Philippines (10th).

A key point in the 2020 GTI report is the shift in ISIL-related attacks away from the Middle East to sub-Saharan Africa. "41% of total ISIL-related attacks in 2019 occurred in sub-Saharan Africa," the report read.
