ABUJA, March 29 (Reuters) - Nigerian President Olusegun Obasanjo has ordered the immediate repatriation of exiled former Liberian President Charles Taylor to Liberia, following his arrest at the border with Cameroon on Wednesday.

Nigerian Information Minister Frank Nweke said Taylor, who is wanted on war crimes charges by a U.N.-backed court in Sierra Leone, should be placed in the custody of the Liberian government.

The NY Times:
The U.N. Security Council had expressed surprise and concern at Taylor's disappearance and Secretary-General Kofi Annan had said he planned to talk to the Nigerian authorities about it. He urged all countries to refuse to give Taylor refuge.
LOL! Strong letter to follow!

(Do these reporters double over with laughter when they write such things?)
