NEDC mulls establishing Boko Haram museum in Maiduguri

The North East Development Commission (NEDC) is contemplating the establishment of a museum dedicated to the Boko Haram insurgency in Maiduguri, Borno, in collaboration with the University of Maiduguri (UNIMAID).

This announcement came during an event commemorating the 2023 International Day of Peace, organized by the Peace Ambassador Centre for Humanitarian Aid and Empowerment, where Mr. Mohammed Alkali, the Managing Director of the Commission, made the revelation.

Alkali emphasized that the museum would serve as a tangible record of the insurgency’s impact, allowing future generations to comprehend the conflict more fully.

He reaffirmed the Commission’s unwavering commitment to assisting insurgency victims and highlighted its integral role in supporting the University’s Centre for Counter Terrorism.
