Abstract: The origin of Boko Haram is a subject of great deal of debate and discussion. The fact is that the insurgency is posing severe challenge before the Nigerian State. It has led to numerous killings, attacks and loss of property worth billions of naira. These activities over a period of time are increasing. To understand the increasing momentum of the movement, the paper incorporates various theoretical perspectives, the study of which enables one to identify the factors-economic, political and psychological, which have created fertile ground for the emergence of the movement and also in accelerating its pace; which has serious implications both at the domestic as well as at the international level.
