An update from the CLEEN Foundation provides an assessment of security threats as Nigeria’s 2015 elections approach. The report states that two main factors – ethnicity and religion – are likely to continue defining party politics in the run up to elections in, and the state of security continues to be dominated by banditry, assassinations, ritual killings, political skirmishes, and rape. The assessment maps security threats across the country and recommends actions to mitigate the threats and improve security.
