Dr. Baba J. Adamu has written a Book “Effect of Global Terrorism & the Niger Delta Crisis” published in Nigeria in 2007 that highlighted the need for effective international cooperation on all aspects of counter-terrorism, especially the denial of safe havens to terrorists engaged in such incitement and a proactive intelligence collection strategy in place, a comprehensive monitoring approach to the diverse threats of kidnappings, armed-banditry and acts of terrorism and why Conflict Mapping with the aim to predict a coming generation of conflicts fuelled by ethnicity, social, religious, political, communal or otherwise was necessary simply because, as the war on Al-Qaeda by USA intensified after Sept 11, Al-Qaeda was on the run but also began exploring new ways to bypass the daunting maze of deterrents already in place. They sought for safe havens to entrench and spread their incitement where there is poverty, ignorance, despair and hopelessness; and they found Africa: Nigeria, Somali; a potential terrorist breeding ground especially with institutional weaknesses that allow terrorists to operate freely with non-coherent and effective ways to forecast or address their menace.
