Hostages freed by Nigerian gang

- +

Four Thais held in an apparent ransom kidnapping in Nigeria have been freed unharmed, a spokesman for the Foreign Ministry said yesterday. 

A gang of armed kidnappers abducted the four on a waterway while they were on their way to work at a fish farm in southern Rivers State, Nigerian officials said last week.

The Thais are from Nong Han district of Udon Thani. They were working at the Buguma Mega Fish Farm, which is state-owned but operated by Israeli company Onida. They are Somchoke Panpinij, Thanavut Phanphinit, Butsaya Sripanya and Chaiyan Taichomphu.
