I argue that the epochal enthroning of 9/11 made the reading of terrorism in Africa among African-based researchers increasingly ahistorical and uncritical. Indeed, African-based voices have contributed to state-centred and state-controlled scholarship in terrorism studies. Critical engagements and research are few, and the prevalent information about Al-Qaeda, Al-Shabaab, Boko Haram and ISWAP is yet to move beyond centring the state and its security agenda.
