  • GENDER-BASED VIOLENCE IN NORTH-WEST NIGERIA

    Abstract

    Northwest Nigeria is mostly populated by the Hausa and Fulani ethnic groups. Social inclusion and gender equality are listed among the fundamental rights. They are essential for a human being to put up their best efforts in resolving all difficulties without restraint. Nonetheless, these rights are frequently withheld in many nations within the African continent, owing to ignorance, religion, and custom fanaticism. Despite these constraints, northern Nigeria is faced with security issues such as persistent cattle rustling which ultimately evolved into armed banditry, which has exacerbated some lingering issues that revolve around children and women. This study attempts to examine the nature of the crisis that may relate to gender-based issues in Zamfara state. The article relied mostly on secondary literature. Evidence proved that security difficulties have worsened the living circumstances of women and girls in the understudied state, thereby exposing women and girls to dangerous attacks and hard living.
