Social insecurity negatives National Development as no given individual would like to fish in troubled water. We talk of social life, where one seeks enjoyment, sociable life or gregarious life, relating to, connected with, or suited to public or fashionable society, a social event, living or disposed to live in companionship with others, or in community, rather than in isolation and unfriendliness. Social problems are general factors that affect and damage society. A social problem is normally a term used to describe problems within a particular area or a group of people in the world. Social problem often involve problems that affect real life. It also affects how people react to certain situations[1]. Terrorism is psychological strategy of war for gaining political or religious ends by deliberately creating a climate of fear among the population of a State. Terrorism is also defined as the systematic use of terror and terror itself is defined as an alarm, dread, panic, fearfulness[2]. The benefits resulting from combing two or more different groups, people, objects or process or behavior of a system that cannot be predicted by behavior of its parts is called synergy. This work shall seek ways and manner, wherein Law and Social Security shall boost the enhancement of the National Development to the advantage of the citizens. That is where the Law enforcement Agency, through lawful means stop kidnappings and Terrorism. The Nation will be impacted negatively and National development will suffer a decline as nobody would want to remain in a country where life and/or social life, properties will not be secure. What are our values, especially the positive values; such as Right to life Rule of law, Human Rights, fair hearing and freedom of movement, all shall be observed and enforced.
