Abstract:Nigeria's population of about 80,000,000 are free to embrace whatever religion they desire. In consequence of such freedom of worship, there grew up in Nigeria three different religions: indigenous religion of Africa (otherwise called African traditional religion), Islam, and Christianity. The author examines how the three religions, and their respective adherents, coexist and interact with one another, dividing his subject into four periods: the era of indigenous religion, the advent of the foreign religions and missionaries, the independence era, and the post-independence era.
