Insecurity and the Niger Delta Environment, Sustainable Peace and Development: An Overview

Sam Olatunji Ajiye


The world with all its complexities is a puzzle, but the most complex of its entire component is man. Man is so complex in nature that even the devil himself does not know the state of mind of a man. The environment where he lives was ordained and given to him by God for his daily needs and survival. Unfortunately, the aftermath of the activities of man on the environment has hitherto altered the natural and uniqueness of the environment. The conflict generated as a result of the selfish exploitation and oppression of man to man has led to insecurity and violent disturbances. The study examined the drivers of human security and its antecedent causes. It x-rayed the mechanisms for sustainable peace and development. It also delved into the violations and abuse of human rights as well as the challenges limiting sustainable peace and development in the Niger Delta. It concluded that without sustainable peace, the Niger Delta region cannot experience sustainable development.
