Four Thais held in an apparent ransom kidnapping in Nigeria have been freed unharmed, a spokesman for the Foreign Ministry said on Saturday.
A gang of armed kidnappers seized the four Thais and two Nigerians on a waterway while they were on their way to work at a state-owned fish farm in southern Rivers State, Nigerian officials said last week.
All four Thai workers are from Nong Han district of Udon Thani. They were working at the Buguma Mega Fish Farm, which is state-owned but operated by the Israeli company Onida.
