Divergent views emerge on the rationale behind Boko Haram Islamic insurgency in Nigeria. Some see it as an attempt to Islamise the secular Nigerian state, while some believe it to be an attempt to change the status quo in order to concretise the perceived dominance of the Northerners over the rest of the country. The 2014 invasion of Chibok Girls High School in the north-eastern part of the country, which led to the kidnap of over 250 girls continues to generate public and academic curiosity. The psychological effects of this insurgency on various stakeholders are unquantifiable, which is going to be our departure point because its impacts are still unfolding. The psychological trauma effect will direct our theoretical discussion. Methodically, qualitative and secondary sources of information will dominate our argument.
