In his widely cited 1991 publication Peace and Violence in Nigeria, Professor Tekena Tamuno promised to publish another volume that would update his assessment of the security challenges confronting Nigeria. That promise has now been more than fulfilled in the volumes we are presenting to the public today. The 1991 publication is a one-volume book; what Baba Tamuno is presenting to us today is a two-volume book of 508 pages and the title, indeed, speaks volumes: Stakeholders at War in Nigeria: From Lord Lugard to President Goodluck Jonathan.
