No Nigerian City Among the 20 Most Violent Cities in the World 




In spite of the widespread poverty and unemployment and the dreadful Boko Haram terrorists on rampage in the northern states in Nigeria, no Nigerian city is listed among the 20 most violent cities in the world and Cape Town is the only city in Africa on the list according the report by Statista.
Out of the world's 50 most violent cities, 41 are in Latin America including 21 in Brazil. The Mexico Citizens Council for Public Security releases its findings on the homicide rate in cities with populations over 300,000 every year. This infographic shows the world's top 20 cities, with Caracas, Venezuela, in first place with 119.87 homicides per 100,000 residents in 2015.

San Pedro Sula, Honduras (111.03 homicides per 100,000) came second with San Salvador, El Salvador (108.54 homicides per 100,000) rounding off the top three. The majority of the violence in Latin America can be attributed to drug trafficking, gang warfare and political instability.
