1. (C) PolMilOff November 28 spoke to Stella Aburime at the 
Nigerian Justice Ministry.  Aburime said that Nigeria had not 
yet developed domestic legislation on chemical or biological 
weapons.  Aburime, who works on the Ministry Committee 
charged with drafting the legislation to internalize the CWC 
convention provision, agreed to share a draft of legislation 
as soon as she has approval to do so.  Embassy will forward 
the Nigerian draft text to the Department when it is 
received, and has forwarded the relevant U.S. Code to Aburime.
