LAGOS (Reuter) - The military administrator of Nigeria's Rivers state has announced the arrest of saboteurs who tried to blow up oil pipelines and pumping stations. Lieutanant-Colonel Dawda Komo gave no further details but those responsible could have been striking oil workers. The strike, which enters its ninth week today, is aimed at forcing General Sanni Abacha's military government to resign and hand power to Moshood Abiola, who is in detention.
