In the last eight years, incidents of terrorism have increased, thousands of people have been killed, and more than 2 million civilians have been displaced.

In fact, last year, the army staged two coups in the country. Now the army is threatening to take over control of the country. Since 2012, almost daily incidents of violence have been witnessed in this area. The violence later spread to neighboring Burkina Faso and Niger, destabilizing the entire region.
