Asiegbu, Victor Iheanyichukwu | Nwankwo, Sabastine Jnr | Briggs, Alasin Captain | Macs, Omieye "An Empirical Analysis of Boko Haram Activities on Educational Development in Northeast, Nigeria" Published in International Journal of Trend in Scientific Research and Development (ijtsrd), ISSN: 2456-6470, Volume-5 | Issue-6, October 2021, pp.1376-1386, URL: https://www.ijtsrd.com/papers/ijtsrd47652.pdf

One of the ways through which a nation can experience educational development is through the provision of a peaceful learning environment. Regrettably, the activities of the Boko Haram sect acts as a hitch to achieving this goal in some part of Nigeria. It is against this backdrop that this study was undertaken to examine the activities of the Boko Haram sect in the Northeastern states of Nigeria (Adamawa, Borno and Yobe) with the main objective of identifying the effects on educational development in Nigeria. Anomie theory was adopted as the framework of analysis for this study. Descriptive survey method and purposive sampling technique were used respectively to obtain the sample size of 240 respondents for this study while 200 questionnaires were validly retrieved. The paper made use of primary and secondary sources of data. The primary data were generated from the two hundred (200) retrieved questionnaires which contain the responses of respondents while content analysis was used to analyze the secondary data. Data were presented in tables and analyzed with the 4-point Likert scale with a 2.50 criterion mean as the standard. The study findings amongst others prove that to a large extent the activities of Boko Haram has hindered educational development in the North East, with the sect destroying over 882 classrooms and abducting a total of nine hundred and thirty-six (936) students of both secondary and tertiary institutions across the country between December 2012 and June 2021. Conclusively, the study made some recommendations on means of managing the activities of the sect.
