Nigeria Now 7th Most Terrorised Country in the World

Nigeria has sunk deeper into the abyss of terrorism and is now the 7th most-terrorised country in the world, according to the latest ranking of the Global Terrorism Index (GTI).

From the 16th slot in 2008, Nigeria went down to 11 in 2009; 12 in 2010; and now seven with a GTI of 7.24. According to the report, Nigeria recorded 168 incidents of terrorism in 2011 from which 437 persons died, 614 people sustained injuries and 33 properties were destroyed.

  1. I'm sure more than 437 people died and more than 614 got injured from Boko haram and other crisis in Nigeria in 2011. The figures are too low.

  2. I even thought that Nigeria would be in the top-three, we no dey carry last in things lik dis #iweepforNigeria... Sometimes I wonder if Jonathan and his cabinet see all these statistics?? May God answer the prayers of the masses and wipe out all these corrupt leaders who don't have the love of this Country in their hearts, treat them like You treated Pharaoh and give us our own Moses, amen!

    1. Yoyin, terrorism and corruption are measured differently. I think we are third for corruption. For terrorism, here are the countries before Nigeria;

      Ahead of Nigeria on the index are Iraq (9.56), Pakistan (9.05), Afghanistan (8.67), India (8.15), Yemen (7.30) and Somali (7.24)

  4. This is what you get from sharing the same habitation with muslims.Islamophobia has killed more than twice the number than HIV/AIDS has killed.just yesterday in an Abuja court,some terrorists confessed being promised 72virgins,if they should kill innocent christians.the legacy muhammed has left behind is highly questionable.
