EFFECTS OF INSURGENCY ON THE PHYSICAL AND SOCIO-ECONOMIC ACTIVITIES IN MAIDUGURI
A b s t r a c t
The activities of the insurgency constitute a serious threat to lives and properties of residents in Maiduguri. Infact, the physical and economic implications of their activities cannot be quantified and the social costs are enormous. Despite the state of emergency that was declared by the Federal government in the affected states the killings, bombing of structures and kidnapping by the insurgents continue unabated. It is against this background that this research is carried out to determine the effect of the insurgency on Physical, social and economic activities of the residents of Maiduguri, with the view to proffers physical planning measures that would reduce the problems to barest minimal. This was achieved through careful interviews with some police officers, Military personnel, Civilian JTF, Wards heads and some residents of Maiduguri. Use of internet services and Newspapers have greatly contributed in compiling of this write- up which shaded more lights on the effect of the insurgency on physical, social and economic activities of residents of Maiduguri. The activities of the insurgents have led to destructions of Houses, Schools, mosques, Churches, market centres and even the military and paramilitary formations. So many utilities were also bombed. Examples, GSM masts, electricity labels and transformers. The insurgents have destroyed many lives and properties that cannot be quantified. From the research conducted, it was discovered that the crisis and violence are not unconnected to poverty, unemployment and misinterpretation of the teaching of the Holy Quran by some Islamic “Ulames”. It is these combined factors that worked against the faith and morals of every member of the group that resulted to such violence. Finally the research has considered some of the causes and effects of the attacks before designing some physical planning measures as recommendations to the key issues. These are: social, economic and physical factors affected by the insurgency.
