Nigeria: Oil workers threaten to shut down output

Help

Nigeria's main oil workers' union says it is putting platforms on red alert for a possible shutdown of the country's output.

The workers are taking part in growing nationwide protests against the removal of a fuel subsidy.

The government is also coming under pressure from another deepening crisis in the country, that of sectarian violence.

The Islamist sect in Nigeria, Boko Haram, has posted a video online attempting to justify recent attacks on Christians.

Mark Lobel reports from Lagos.
