NWAUCHE, Enyinna S. The Nigerian police force and the enforcement of religious criminal law. Afr. hum. rights law j. [online]. 2014, vol.14, n.1, pp. 203-216. ISSN 1609-073X.

The argument of this article is that the Nigerian police force is responsible by the tenor of the provisions of the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria for the enforcement of criminal law in Nigeria, whether they are religiously inspired or not. Accordingly, the Nigerian police force has a constitutional responsibility to enforce the Islamic penal codes introduced in 12 Northern Nigerian states in the wake of Nigeria's fourth republic from 1999.
