Ishola, Oluwabukola Mayowa, Shoewu, O., Olatinwo, Segun O.


This study applied Analytical Hierachical Process (AHP), a mathematical model for resolving complex systems,  to solve the incessant Boko Haram Crisis in Nigeria. At the core of conflict resolution is the need to assess the benefits and costs of the proposed solutions. AHP which is a model for conflict resolution was used to build a real life model of the Boko Haram Crisis. The model relies soely on the hierarchical structure of AHP which was the basis for the software designed for this work. The most critical point in this work is the determination of the relative priority of the criteria, objectives and alternatives used during the decission making.

This research  concludes that for a lasting solution to the incessant Boko Haram Crisis, violent demonstration should be in the direction of dialogue. Dialogue should be centered on Imposition of Sharia Rule and Security as these two objectives have the highest priority with respect to Boko Harm Sect and Federal Government Respectively.
