Abstract:
The main argument of the paper is that local conflicts are increasingly taking the dimension of terrorism in Africa. Relying on secondary sources of data, the paper descriptively examined the nature and drivers of local conflicts in the Lake Chad Basin region. It identified the prevalence of ungoverned spaces, easy access to Small Arms and Light Weapons (SAWL) and political exclusion as factors that encouraged terrorism in Africa’s local conflicts. Identity theory was used to explain the dimension of terrorism in Africa’s local conflicts. The paper emphasized on the need for law enforcement agencies in Africa to arrest and prosecute perpetrators of these local conflicts with terrorism charges which it argued would serve as deterrence. It also suggested for the use of intelligence in order to proactively curbing these conflicts in Africa
