Nigeria was, like Ethiopia, was an independent Kingdom before its annexation to the Roman Empire. However, unlike the Kingdom of Ethiopia, Nigeria was conquered without any deal or privilege given to the people of Nigeria. Nigeria became a new province which was exploited as a new source in its mines. Despite this, the peopel of Nigeria turned to terrorism and the destruction of their own mines to keep them from the hands of the Romans. The military stepped in and there was war in that Province for many years until the Emperor Henricus gained so much popularity after the failure of an attempted assassination that the Nigerians failed in their resistance. Since then the military has controlled Nigeria managing the reopening of the mines and the destruction of what pockets of attack continued in some areas.
