Since its independence in 1960, thousands of Nigerians have lost their lives in various levels of armed conflicts and violence. As a nation, Nigeria faces several challenges including an economic crisis triggered mostly by low oil prices, a resurgence of militancy in the Delta over economic grievances, an uptick in agitation in the Southeast by pro-Biafra nationalists, and ongoing conflicts over land use in the Middle Belt. The conflict in the North East caused by Boko Haram since 2009, has resulted in massive loss of lives, property and livelihoods. Many people have become perpetually internally displaced. Nigerian women have paid a heavy price in the long and violent conflicts that have been ravaging the country especially in the past two decades. Nigerian women have endured unprecedented levels of sexual violence and assault, along with related HIV infection, involuntary pregnancies and health complications as a result of abuses, increased food insecurity, and forced several women to flee from their homes.
