Kidnapped Turkish Nationals Have Been Released

Four Turkish nationals have been rescued a week after being kidnapped by gunmen in Nigeria’s western state of Kwara, police say.

Two weeks ago pirates attacked a cargo ship off the coast of Nigeria and kidnapped 10 Turkish sailors. Their fate remains unknown.

The Turkish constructors were found in a bush on Friday, Kayode Egbetokun, Kwara sate’s commissioner of police, told the BBC.

The rescue operation was carried out by the state police, local vigilantes and a team of officers sent from the capital, Abuja.

Mr Egbetoku said the arrest of three other kidnappers, before the rescue operation, had helped.

„These arrests put pressure on the remaining gang members to release the Turkish hostages unconditionally,“ he said, adding that police were looking for the rest of the gang.
