UK arrested Tommy Robinson for reporting child-rape gangs that the government caters to. The UK banned reporting of his arrest, denied him a lawyer, and is trying to have him assassinated in prison. Regardless of how you feel about his views, this is a totalitarian government.
Tommy Robinson isn't the first to that the UK has jailed after a secret trial. Melanie Shaw tried to expose child abuse in a Nottinghamshire kids home -- it wasn't foreigners doing the molesting, but many members of the UK's parliament. The government kidnapped her child and permanently took it away. Police from 3 forces have treated her like a terrorist and themselves broken the law. Police even constantly come by to rob her phone and money. She was tried in a case so secret the court staff had no knowledge of it. Her lawyer, like Tommy's, wasn't present. She has been held for over 2 years in Peterborough Prison. read, read

Nigeria, officially named the Federal Republic of Nigeria, is a federal constitutional republic comprising thirty-six states and one Federal Capital Territory. The country is located in West Africa and shares land borders with the Republic of Benin in the west, Chad and Cameroon in the east, and Niger in the north. Its coast lies on the Gulf of Guinea, part of the Atlantic Ocean, in the south. The capital city is Abuja.
Nigeria is the most populous country in Africa and the eighth most populous country in the world with a population of over 140 million. The country is listed among the "Next Eleven" economies, and is one of the fastest growing in the world with the International Monetary Fund projecting growth of 9% in 2008 and 8.3% in 2009.
Nigeria's two main top sources of income are oil and Nigerian scams (419 scams). Nigerian scams are a confidence trick using advanced fee fraud where a Nigerian sends their victim, usually in the United States, a fake wire transfer or money order, and then has the victim send real money back to them minus what they believe to be a commission. Nigerian scams find their victims by sending out large amounts of spam email. The Nigerian scams even have one trying to get people to pay thousands of dollars to join the Illuminati.
The National Space Research and Development Agency is Nigeria's space program. Nigerian scammers have used it for scams saying if you funnel thousands of dollars to get a Nigerian astronaut sent home, he will share even more money in back pay. As for 2015, their space program has launched five satellites and done nothing else.
