Suspected members of an Islamist sect that launched an uprising last year have attacked and torched a police station in northern Nigeria, police said on Tuesday.

Islamism is a totalitarian ideology adhered to by Muslim extremists (e.g. the Taliban, Hamas and Osama bin Laden and his gang of criminals).

It is considered to be a distortion of Islam. Many Islamists engage in terrorism in pursuit of their goals.
