Suspected gunmen have freed a German citizen working for construction firm, Julius Berger, less than a week after they kidnapped him and killed another German citizen in a raid on their vehicles, the company said yesterday.
The kidnappers attacked the staff and a contractor for the firm in Ogun state on Friday, as they were making their way to work in a quarry.
The firm said at the time that they were travelling without their security escorts.
“Julius Berger Nigeria…is pleased to…announce the release of the company’s member of staff,” a statement said.
“The company would like to thank all those who assisted in achieving a swift and safe release, especially government authorities and security services.”(Source: Reuters)
