Nigeria's president on Saturday declared a state of emergency in parts of Africa's most populous nation, after a recent slew of deadly attacks blamed on a northern-based radical Muslim sect killed dozens of people, as separate communal clashes in the country's southeast left more than 40 dead.
President Goodluck Jonathan declared an indefinite state of emergency in four states, which would all allow security agencies there to make arrests without proof and conduct searches without warrants. He also ordered the closure of international borders near the affected areas.
...The sect, some of whose members are believed to have links to al-Qaida, wants to impose Islamic Shariah law across Nigeria.NIGERIA IS THE MOST POPULATED NATION IN AFRICA - AND NEVER PART OF A CALIPHATE UNTIL THE 19TH C, RELATIVELY LATE.
