Nigeria’s North-East Region is Safer Today than This Same Time Last Year (Watch Video)

 

Nigeria may be facing severe challenges at the moment but we need to lay emphasis on whatever appears to be getting better.

Kudos to our gallant soldiers and the leadership of the Nigerian Armed Forces. The once troubled North-East region of Nigeria -though not entirely safe- is MUCH safer now than a year ago.

Data courtesy Armed Conflict Location & Event Data (ACLED) Project reveal a 32% decrease in reported BokoHaram incidents and a 74.9% decrease in reported fatalities as of July 2016 when compared to the same time last year (July 2015).

Let’s hope this trend is sustained as we continue to pray for our soldiers, affected Nigerians and for overall peace in Nigeria.
