Abstract

Violent extremism is worsening in Nigeria, but the activities funding insurgents’ operations remain largely unknown by state security agencies. LSE Fellow Uche Igwe describes the financial arrangements supporting Boko Haram’s violence across the country and the Lake Chad basin, and how criminal economies in the region can be undermined by international cooperation.
