WHAT IS THE OFFICIAL RELIGION OF NIGERIA AND STATES IN NIGERIA.

Some Countries have preference for some religions and as such have official state religions.
In Nigeria, both at Federal and State levels and across all parts of Nigeria, there is no federal, state or official religion. It is prohibited and unconstitutional to adopt any religion for Nigeria or any state in Nigeria.
All religions are allowed and permitted in Nigeria, so far as practises of such religions are not contrary to any law.
Even states that have Sharia or Customary/Tradition laws do not have any official religion. Also, no religion should have prevalence or relevance or more access to state facilities in any part of Nigeria.
Note that it is a breach of fundamental human rights to discriminate against any religion or persons of religion or violate any person’s right to freedom of religion.

My authorities are sections 10, 38, 42 and 319 of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria 1999.

DAILY LAW TIPS

(Tip 133)
“Houses, Emails, Phones, Computers, Bank Accounts and Other Personal Items Cannot Be Merely Searched and Seized By Nigerian Police”.

In Nigeria, there is “Right to Private and Family Life” as a fundamental human right of all persons in Nigeria(including literates and illiterates, Young and Old, Students and Workers, Nigerians and Foreigners).
Hence, Police, SARS and other security agencies and their agents CANNOT break into and search your house or search through your phones, laptops, emails or bank accounts. Before any of the above activities can be done, the security agency must first obtain and show to you an order of court authorising such activities. Unprofessional policing is a crime.

My authority: section 37 of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria 1999.
