In this bonus episode of the Warpod, we pair with Chatham House’s Undercurrents podcast to discuss security forces in Nigeria and the role played by young people in trying to bring about change. The episode is broken into two halves. Abigail Watson and Delina Goxho are first joined by Tarela Ike from Teesside University and Odeh Friday from Accountability Lab. They discuss the problems with responses to Boko Haram in the North East of the country and the recent EndSars movement.
In her half, Amrit Swali, project coordinator in the International Security Programme at Chatham House, speaks to Mariam Haruna, a member of Chatham House’s Common Futures Conversation, and Tolu Oni, a member of Chatham House’s Panel of Young Advisers, about their experiences of the EndSARS movement in 2020, the role of social media in the protests, and how to move towards sustainable change in policing structures.
The episode can also be listened to on the Chatham House website.
