This dissertation assesses Boko Haram's justifications and conduct of war from the perspective of Islamic laws of war. It examines whether the group's use of force is justified under Islamic law and whether its conduct in prosecuting its hostility complies with Islamic regulations. Ultimately, the dissertation would establish whether the group's war is a jihad as it claims, or a baghy (rebellion) or a hiraba (terrorism) under Islamic law.
