Nigeria's Defence and National Security Linkages

A Framework of Analysis

by Thomas A. Imobighe

Defence and national security in Africa are relatively neglected areas of study, especially by Nigerian scholars, although research in these areas appears to be on the increase in some Nigerian universities. This study aims to make available the analytical tools and necessary criteria to enable reliable judgements about the state of the country’s security and to identify the weaknesses. The book is organised into four main sections: internal security linkages, external linkages, the enforcement linkages and the defence component.
