Abstract

Conflicts and wars are not new to the world. Man has been fighting amongst themselves for centuries now. However, many reasons have been adduced for wars, but the wars of this modern age has moved beyond the conventional conflicts between two opposing nations or tribes to a different form of struggle which has acquired the character of religious movements and very much clandestine in nature. The world is now moving from secular wars to religious motivated wars, from conventional wars to unconventional wars, that is, terrorism. This new phenomenon has been fuelled by globalisation and the drive to turn the world into a single global village. At the local level, Nigeria has had its own share of religious motivated terrorism which is antiglobalisation.
