So in Nigeria, for example, you see Nigerian Muslims also practicing indigenous beliefs, same as the Christians. You go to Igboland, for example, which is mostly in Eastern Nigeria, you see a Christian, he goes to church, he or she goes to church in the morning and in the evening he or she is behind the house practicing some African religion. That’s typically Nigerian and African, generally speaking.”
