Expatriates abducted in Gabon and Nigerian negotiators have been released from their captors.
Commanding Officer, 29 Battalion, Lt. Col. Mohammed Yahaya, spoke to reporters at the 6 Division, Nigeria Army, Bori Camp in Port Harcourt.
“As they were about bringing them out of the creeks, they had issues that made them even susceptible to kidnapping again.
“Men of the 29 Battalion, under the 6 Division, in conjunction with local vigilantes launched an operation and were able to rescue them.
“They have a trolley, Socipeg, registered in Gabon. It was in the course of their fishing activities that they were kidnapped,” Yahaya said.
