For more than two decades, calls have been made for inter-city comparative analysis of crime in Nigeria. Whilst selected single-city studies have been conducted, there is no recent robust attempt to systematically gauge the internal crime dynamics of cities in Nigeria against each other. This research monograph represents a bold empirical move in this regard. Thirty six Nigerian cities are placed on a rigorous and reliable comparative footing by applying selected statistical measures from a battery of indicators. The extensive numerical analysis is further supplemented by interpretivist approaches which help to yield fresh contextual evidence about the dynamics of crimes in urban settings.
