Two Chinese nationals, kidnapped in Nigeria, freed

Two Chinese men kidnapped on Wednesday in Ebonyi State have regained their freedom.

The police spokesperson in the state, Loveth Odah, told journalists in Abakaliki on Sunday that they were rescued by the police unhurt.

According to her, their abductors were forced to abandon them in a forest near the location where they were kidnapped, following pressure mounted on them by the police who were closing in on their location.

“They were rescued on Saturday by 11 a.m. The pressure was so much on the kidnappers that they had to abandon them and flee. They were rescued in a thick forest around the area unhurt. They were not physically tortured but they may be psychologically tortured,” Ms Odah said.

She called on foreigners in the state to always partner with the police and other security agencies so that they can be adequately protected.
