Terrorist activities in Nigeria in the last decades has negatively affected the economic growth and has drastically reduced the possibilities of foreign investments in Nigeria.

Using the Global Terrorism Database (GTD), insights are made on the occurrences of terrorist attacks, the localities of target and the successful and unsuccessful rates of such attacks. The Apriori algorithm is also used in this paper to draw hidden patterns from the GTD in order to aid in the generation of strong rules through database mining, resulting in relevant insights.
