Abstract

Food security in Maiduguri has come under threats since the emergence of series of attacks by a terrorist sect called ‘Boko Haram’ (BH). This paper examined the various ways in which the activities of BH have threatened food security in Maiduguri, the capital of Borno State in the north east of Nigeria. The study was conducted through a field research that involved administration of questionnaire, interviews, observation and elicitation. The data analysis revealed that the BH actions have affected the agricultural sector. Recommendations were made to ease the chain of food supply.
