The Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA) on Sun­day announced the release of eight Nigerians, includ­ing five members of the Maritime Workers Union of Nigeria (MWUN) kid­naped by gunmen in Rivers State waters on Monday.

Osagie Edward, NIMA­SA’s Assistant Director, Public Relations, in a state­ment, noted that the victims regained their freedom on Saturday evening following the intervention of the Di­rector-General of Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMA­SA), Dr. Bashir Jamoh, and other stakeholders.

The DG of NIMASA broke the news after a phone conversation with the President-General of the Maritime Workers Union of Nigeria (MWUN), Comrade Adewale Adey­anju, at about 8:15 p.m. on Sunday.

The abductees are be­lieved to be in good phys­ical condition and the MWUN President General is expected to provide de­tailed report on incidents surrounding the abduction early next week.

The eight persons were travelling to Port Har­court from Kula area in Akuku-Toru Local Govern­ment Area, before the gun­men abducted them at the Kula-Abonnema waterway.

NIMASA assured that more information would be made available to the public in due course.
