This article is a sustainable programmatic communication framework which links lessons from Indonesia in the
era of the Laskar Jihadists (a militant Muslim faction) and “Boko Haram Sect “insurgence in Nigeria. The article
verifies a previous peer group conference paper conceived at Ohio University in 2005. Original empirical data sets derived from authentic personal communication and professional instructions guided the translation of the lessons to realistic socio scientific knowledge. Social mobilization model was used to conceptualize this article. Security forces have not been able to control or prevent or adequately address religious conflict violence, peace and freedom in Indonesian and Nigerian. Programmatic communication campaign should be used to promote inter-religious peace and freedom in these countries’ contemporary relationships between Muslims and Christians.
