Predicting Terrorist Attacks and Analyzing Crime Incidents in Nigeria Using Machine Learning

Local Chapter Enugu, Nigeria Chapter

Coordinated by Nigeria ,

Project background.

According to Wikipedia, Nigeria is considered to be a country with a high level of crime, ranking 17th among the least peaceful countries in the world, and during the first half of 2022, almost 6,000 people were killed by jihadists, kidnappers, bandits, or the Nigerian army.

Being able to tackle the rate of crime in the country is a big plus to the security of the nation. The ability of the security agency to have a clear understanding of the distribution of different crimes committed and also able to anticipate/predict possible crime outbursts will go a long way to tackling the security challenges of the nation.
