Abstract
Terrorist attacks by Boko Haram have continued to fester over the years despite efforts by the government and security agencies to control it. This has necessitated employing de-indoctrination as a framework that could effectively (re)direct policy and action. Using descriptive approach, data were secondarily sourced and analyzed to present detailed figures of records and casualties of attacks by Boko Haram over the years. Following descriptive statistics, date were presented in charts and tables with detailed descriptions. We found that Boko Haram terrorists enjoy significant level of sympathy from some Northern citizens due to indoctrination. This shows that indoctrination remains the most effective tool breeding the growth of Boko Haram terrorism in Nigeria. We therefore advocate the adoption of de-indoctrination as a framework that involves conscious efforts aimed at reexamining the type of education available to youths and children in the Northern Nigeria. We also call for the alamjiri system of education to be redesigned in such a way that there is no room for indoctrination.
Keywords: Boko Haram, De-indoctrination, Framework, Indoctrination, Terrorism.
