Video - Nigeria's army claims arrest of Avengers militant group leader
The Nigerian army claims it has arrested a suspected leader of the Niger Delta Avengers, as well as other suspected militants accused of attacking oil and gas infrastructure. Isaac Romeo and two others were detained over the weekend in Calabar, the capital of Cross River state in the Delta region. Authorities say they picked up a fourth man on Tuesday in Edo, north of Delta. He's thought to be responsible for last month's attack on a pipeline operated by the Nigerian Petroleum Development Company and energy giant Shoreline.
