Nigeria: December 27, 2002


  Police arrested the leader of an anti-government movement (YDM, the  Youth Democratic Movement) as responsible for the fire earlier in the week that destroyed the headquarters of the national oil company.

The YDM, which had not been heard from before, claimed responsibility for the fire on December 25th.
