    Nigeria is bordered by Benin to the west, Chad and Cameroon to the east and Niger to the north. To the south is the Gulf of Guinea, which is part of the Atlantic Ocean. The Niger river, the third longest in Africa after the Nile and Congo, discharges into the gulf. The Mediterranean Sea lies to the north of Africa and the Indian Ocean to the east. The Mozambique Channel is also to the east, and is part of the Indian Ocean. It lies between Mozambique on the mainland and the island of Madagascar.

  4. 4 Which early civilisation in what is now central Nigeria was the first in the region to make and use iron tools, and are thought to be the first Sub-Saharan people to make intricate and life-size terracotta statues?

    1. Bariba
    2. Nok
    3. Songhai
    4. Fulani

    The Nok civilisation existed in what is now Kaduna state in central Nigeria between 1000 BC and 200 AD, after which it seems to have disappeared. It was a sophisticated farming community of between 2000-4000 people who began smelting iron by 500 BC to make tools. The discovery of Nok statues, depicting humans and animals, was first made by Europeans mining for tin in the area in 1928. These terracotta statues are remarkable for their detail, including in some cases the depiction of physical deformities and the ravages of disease. The purpose the statues were made for is unclear, though it seems possible they were used as part of the burial process or to ward off misfortunes such as crop failure or infertility.

  5. 5 Who of these has NOT been a Senate President?

    2. Iyorchia Ayu

  7. 7 A crime particularly associated with Nigeria is often referred to as a 'Section 419', after the part of the country's penal code which deals with it. What type of crime is it?

    1. Kidnapping
    2. Piracy
    3. Fraud
    4. Drug smuggling

    Unfortunately, all these crimes can be associated with Nigeria, but Section 419 specifically refers to fraud. The typical scam is to send out letters, or these days emails, which purport to come from a high placed government official. Access can be gained to a large sum of money, which will be shared with you, if you only release your bank details for the transfer or send money to oil the wheels. Should you do so the contact, and your money, will disappear, never to be seen again. You may, though, receive follow up correspondence from 'the police', offering to help recover your money - for a fee. Useful information about the scam can be found on many websites, including those of the Metropolitan Police, 419 Coalition and 419 Eater.
