The Global Terror Index rates Nigeria fourth-worst in the world, ahead of Syria. The global terrorism index systematically ranks countries of the world according to their terrorist activity. Nigeria ranked fourth on the global terrorism index making it one of the most affected by terrorism, on earth.

Since 2009, Nigeria has been coping with the Boko Haram Islamist militancy in the country’s northeast, which is trying to mark out an Islamic state in the country.

Today, shortly after the arrival of the new V.P. Yemi Osinbajo’s surprise visit to Maiduguri, the capital of Borno state, 2 suicide bombers blew themselves at a hospital at Molai, a village located in the outskirt of Maiduguri. Disguised as patients, one had tried to gain access through the front door and the other through the back door but were denied access by a security guard. Only a few were injured when they detonated and killed themselves near the entrance.

“Many refugees would like to return to their villages and return to work in the fields, but different areas formally liberated by Boko Haram are still dangerous”, says His Exc. Mgr. Stephen Dami Mamza, Bishop of Yola in the northeast of Nigeria, in an interview with Kna Agency. From September to December 2014, Boko Haram had conquered seven major towns in Adamawa State. Tens of thousands of people fled the capital, Yola.

According to the Bishop, one of the most dangerous areas is near the Sambisa forest. Mgr. Mamza complains, in addition to the continuous attacks by terrorists, about the failure regarding the reconstruction of public infrastructure by government agencies. In particular, the health sector: “The majority of hospitals and pharmacies are still closed, and relatively easy to cure diseases can cause serious problems”. (Agenzia Fides 01/07/2015)
