He is a fellow of the French Institute for Research in Africa, Ibadan, Nigeria. His researches are focused on terrorism, urban violence, Governance and Security of cultural heritages. He has participated in conferences within and outside Nigeria on security matters. He has published in journals and also contributed to book chapters. His Doctoral research is focused on the security challenges posed by insurgents on heritage sites, using Timbuktu, Mali as a case study. This innovative work borders on linking security studies with heritage studies. Given the primacy of heritage to humanity and the threats to them by modern-day insurgents, this study promises to be a fresh insight into a global problem. With his background in mass communication, he is also looking at collaborating with Southern University International Center for Information Technology and Development, Baton Rouge, Louisiana, USA; on the conflicts motivated by social media in the political engagements in Nigeria.
