Two Royal Dutch Shell oil workers who were kidnapped in the Niger Delta region last week have been rescued, a police spokesman and Shell Petroleum Development Company of Nigeria Limited (SPDC) said on Tuesday.
The victims were attacked in Rivers state last week while returning from an official trip to Bayelsa state.
“The tactical team of the command rescued the victims in the early hours of Tuesday,” said Nnamdi Omoni a spokesman for Rivers state police force.
A spokesman for SPDC also said the two officials were free. “They are well and being supported after their ordeal,” said SPDC spokesman Michael Adande.
