A dozen relatives of the jailed Nigerian opposition leader, Moshood Abiola, have been detained in the investigation into the murder of his wife. "We are going to interrogate every family member who might be able to shed light on the killing of Kudirat Abiola." said Archibong Nkana, who is leading the murder hunt.

The National Concord newspaper, owned by Moshood Abiola, said those arrested included the millionaire's brother, Mubashiru Abiola, who has been the family spokesman since senior wife Kudirat Abiola was killed by unknown gunmen last week. The latest arrests follow the detention of Kola Abiola, 33, the eldest son of Moshood Abiola. Lagos - Reuter
