Abstract

The Nigerian state has been drawn into a mano a mano with formidable criminal gangs, rogue groups, horrific terror death angels and vicious sociopaths who have committed themselves to the obnoxious agenda of causing mayhem, misery, deaths and bringing incalculable destruction to the Nigerian state and people. The shadow of insecurity has pervaded Nigeria like ominous clouds striking fear in the hearts of citizens and residents. The nation seems to be under a siege and the police and other security agencies appear to be overwhelmed and are stretched to their limits in dealing with the insecurity in the country. Nevertheless, the recrudescence of violent crimes in Nigeria is not an exclusive situation peculiar to the country. Several countries of the world are capitals for rape, murders, other violent crimes and evil contrivances and yet have been able to choreograph industrial development and social advancement in their countries. This chapter aims to peruse how Nigeria can achieve industrial development in spite of its security challenges. Credible suggestions have been mooted to make industrial development a reality in Nigeria in spite of the patent byzantine insecurity in the country
