4 Thais released unharmed after being kidnapped in Nigeria
LAGOS (AFP) - Four Thais and a Nigerian held in an apparent ransom kidnapping in southern Nigeria have been freed unharmed, officials in both countries said on Saturday.
"The four of them were released at exactly 2am this morning," the agricultural commissioner in Nigeria's Rivers state Emmanuel Chindah told AFP.
A gang travelling by boat abducted a group of six including two Nigerians on August 9 while they were on their way to work at a fish farm in Rivers.
One of the Nigerians drowned in the incident.
