This paper examines the Boko Haram induced rural – urban migration and Food Security in the Northeast, Nigeria with its attendant consequences of abandoned agricultural activities and inevitable food insecurity. The insurgency became active in 2009 and has decimated several communities, destroyed food crops, ruminant livestock and forced farmers to flee to protective camps. Many now rely on food aid from international organizations, philanthropist or street begging. This paper attempts a review of causes of the insurgence and its implication on the society. This article assesses the implication on individual household economy and proffers probable solutions.
