Nigeria is ranked as the third most terrorised country in the world, up one notch from last year when it was ranked fourth.

As reported by Nigeria’s Daily Post, the 2015 Global Terrorism Index (GTI) ranked 162 countries around the world.

The report, released on November 16 by the Institute for Economics and Peace, said the Islamist terror group in Nigeria, Boko Haram, overtook IS in 2014 to become the most deadly terrorist organisation in the world.

The 2015 GTI report observed that Boko Haram, in 2014, was also able to spread outside Nigeria to launch two deadly attacks in neighbouring Cameroon, killing 530 people.
