Break up Nigeria into how many pieces?

In response to calls by some to break up Nigeria I thought to share this map. It shows the geographical location of ethnic groups in Nigeria. I could not label all of them but I think the few labelled help emphasize some points. The North is not just Hausa, the west is not just “Yoruba” and the east is not just Ibo. Exactly how many pieces will we need to break into to achieve ethnic homogeneity? I can count about 30.


Religious statistics are a bit harder to find but I’ll share those once I find them. You can download the entire ethnographic map here. (Warning: You need geographic information software to open it).

  1. Breaking is d Paramount issue! South East is Homogenous with Spill overs into Northern Rivers(though they will beg to differ on this) and Delta!
