Nigeria's military said on Sept. 7 that it had arrested a suspected leader of the Niger Delta Avengers militant group and other men accused of attacking oil and gas infrastructure.
Soldiers, backed up by the country's air force and by security officers, detained Isaac Romeo with two other men over the weekend in Calabar, the capital of Cross River state in the Delta region, the military said.
Authorities picked up a fourth man on Sept. 6 in Edo state, which is north of Delta state. He is thought to be responsible for last month's attack on a pipeline operated by the Nigerian Petroleum Development Co. (NPDC) and Nigerian energy company Shoreline, the military added.
The Avengers were one of the most active groups blamed for a string of attacks that have taken out more than 700,000 barrels per day of oil production in 2016.
The Avengers declared a cease-fire late in August in an open letter to the government, but the military is continuing to arrest suspected militants for fear of further attacks during talks.
