The reported period, 1st to 15th April experienced a slight decline in the number of attacks from terrorist and violent extremist groups across the length and breadth of Africa. The areas most affected by terrorism and violent extremism for the period include the Sahel Region, Lake Chad Basin Area, the East and Horn of Africa, the North Africa as well as the Central Africa Region.
