Following the rise in the number of casualties from Boko Haram attacks in the northeast, Nigeria falls behind Afghanistan and Iraq.

The report also revealed that total deaths from terrorism in Nigeria fell to 1,245 in 2019, a 39 per cent decline, making it the lowest in the country since 2011.

But, as terrorism declines in the country, banditry is spiralling out of control, especially in northern Nigeria.
