The Nigerian Navy has arrested one Mr Uduak Etim Thompson aka Sangata, a top leader of a militant group known as Bakassi Strike Force (BSF).

This is contained in a statement released on Wednesday by its Director of Information, Commodore Christian Ezekobe.
According to the statement the suspected militant was arrested on September 12, 2016 at his hideout in Calabar by a joint team from Nigerian Navy Ship VICTORY and Defence Intelligence Agency.

The statement further said, “In a related development, the patrol team deployed by Naval Outpost (NOP) Ikuru arrested four suspected notorious sea robbers who were alleged to be responsible for several attacks and robbery incidences at Oyorokoro, Ataba, Kaa and Oyorokoro communities in Andoni Local Government Area of Rivers State. The gang was alleged to have particularly attacked market women on September 4, 2016 at Oyorokoro Community.

“These arrests bring to fore the commitment of the Nigerian Navy and other security agencies to stamp out the menace of criminal brigandage in the region. Investigation into these untoward activities have commenced and the perpetrators will be handed over to prosecuting agencies for further action.”
