Abstract: Various researches have focused on the current crises situations and insecurity in Nigeria and beyond, articulating their respective concerns for this social predicament. Innocent Nigerians, young and old have been subjected to traumatic experiences; carnage, brutality and family disunity resulting from these conflicts. Literary writers are not left out of the attempt to compile and document the literatures of these conflicts, through their creative works. This paper examines the traumatic experience of individuals in the face of insecurity, such as Boko Haram insurgence in Northern Nigeria, as depicted by El-Nathan John in Born on a Tuesday. This he succinctly presents through the character. Dantala whose perseverance throughout the various challenges helps him to survive the crises that featured in his life from adolescence to adulthood. This survival is achievable, the author argues, through the positive significance of perseverance, as the protagonist suffers both family and socially induced trauma.
