For the past decade, there have been intermittent conflicts In North East Nigeria that have left many people negatively affected; the consequences of this war isn’t only the loss of life or means of livelihood, but also the crippling down of educational systems. While women in this areas were hardly encouraged to school, the effect of insecurity in the North Eastern part of the country has caused a lot of devastating effect on women especially their education; a major target for destruction by boko haram group. This has crippled the educational system of those states affected and have further deterred and demoralized students who once had a strong ambition to study from making efforts to satisfy such ambitions for fear of their life.

During the course of this research we discovered that some families have started pulling their children to other parts of the country and beyond, for safety and proper education. This paper seeks to find out the extent insurgency by Boko Haram has affected the women education in North East part of the country; upon conclusion, there will be proposed working solutions to tackle this challenge and build trust within the community though education.
