Nigeria's DSS 'arrests Cameroon separatist leader'

The leader of Cameroon's separatist movement has been arrested by Nigeria's intelligence agency, a government source has told the BBC. Sisiku Ayuk Tabe was arrested on Friday in Abuja for engaging in a clandestine meeting against Cameroonian authorities, the source said. Officially, the Department for State Service has denied making the arrest.

His movement of English-speaking campaigners wants to separate from the French-speaking majority. Mr Tabe was taken from an unnamed hotel around 19:00 by a group of at least 15 armed men in military gear, an eyewitness told the BBC.

His group, the Governing Council of Ambazonia, released a statement demanding the release of their leader who had been based in Nigeria.
