Nigeria: April 20, 2002


Police arrested a Moslem religious teacher in the southwest. The man was found to have a large cache of weapons and was unable to provide an explanation for it. Fear of more religious violence continues. In the southwest, Moslems are a minority. The minorities (in the north, Christians are a minority) realize that their best protection against attack by hostile mobs is better weapons.
